Froth on the Broccoli Soup

Wednesday, March 01, 2006


Thank You, Chloe, for the wonderful Broccoli Soup recipe. I had been surfing around for a good one and then wondered if she would have one, and voila!

Chloe's Broccoli soup: For 2-4 servings

6 tablespoons butter
1 large onion (processed to invisibility if the soup is for kids)
1 carrot peeled and minced
1 potato peeled, cut
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 cups stock (vegetable or whatever you've got, commercial is okay)
1 head of broccoli cut into small flowerets (don't throw away the stems just peel and cut into rounds)
1 cup grated parmesan or other yellow cheese
1 cup heavy cream (or light cream, that's okay too, sometimes I just add milk)
pepper,
salt

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add nutmeg; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds.Stir in stock, broccoli potato and carrot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer until vegetables are tender, for about 10 minutes.Purée soup in batches, filling blender halfway. Return to pot. Add cream and parmesan. Taste and add salt if needed. Sprinkle some pepper.

I wasn't able to puree it as well as I'd liked because the babe has decided that the blender is scary. And I used milk because Mr. C had bought dessert whipping cream rather than regular cream :) But it turned out delicious! Chloe is a magician. Her magic recipe was so good even I could make it taste good. It's minus 17 degrees Celsius tonight, so the warm soup was lovely.

Is there a recipe you've been searching for?

    MMMmmmm that sounds yummy!

    Agh - you need to provide the
    link that can e-mail this to
    anyone you want - it's so helpful!
    It looks great - I think you should
    call it Shrek soup - doesn't she
    call it Shrek soup?

    Happy green post from a broccoli
    lover and lover of all things
    green.

    SMiles!

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    Shrek soup, yes that's what it is.
    But you made it look lovely.
    I've been looking, and REALLY looking for a hot chocolate without milk, recipe. No soya milk either. Ideas anyone?

  1. Blogger Gurgo said:

    There is a page in german talking about doing hot chocolate with real cacao beans. They grind them and cook them with water and some chili. You might see it at the pictures without knowing German.
    Good luck

    Anhoni;
    Michelle has offered a good spinach pie recipe!

    Angel;
    I do not observe Lent, but if it would be great for it; go for it!

    Meow;
    I wish you were closer and you could come for lunch and have some! There are two bowls in the fridge just waiting to get heated up.

    Michelle;
    Thanks!

    Madelyn;
    I cut and apsted it from the e-mail from Chloe; can you do the same from the post? Shrek soup! Yes, that's great! And although the babe did not eat it, my son does actually like green food!

    Chloe;I was about to start searching for you and then saw that Gurgo has a link to one; will this one do? Do you need a translation?

    Gurgo;
    Thanks for providing this: we may need to translate it, however.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    thanks Gurgo and thanks Cathy
    no translation needed, the pictures are enough.
    i was really looking for such a recipe! you are a treasure Gurgo.

    Can you blame him, whipped cream is awsome, I eat the heck out of it with my pumpkin pie! I can't find my gumbo recipe ;-(

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Chloe;
    See...you need to write your cookbook about this kind of exchange of recipes!

    Will;
    I am cupping my hands up to my mouth and hollering: ANYONE GOT A GOOD GUMBO RECIPE??? SOMEONE? ANYONE?...I have never made Gumbo. Ever. So I am not the best person to provide you with one.

  1. Blogger vani said:

    yummm..love your bowl too. :)

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Lovely soup! Now, what will you make with the dessert whipping cream? Suuuuuuure he got it by mistake ;)

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    I'm not a recipe person but I love soups. I eat soup every day, even in the summer, in the hottest days. It's crazy sometimes. But it's a portuguese thing (for some, obviously not everyone is so healthy ;)

  1. Blogger No_Newz said:

    Man that sounds and looks good! How did the kids like it?
    I have been wanting a good brownie cookie recipe. Marshal Field's in downtown Chicago used to have the best. But something changed when Mrs. Field's came out with her own line and the store stopped carrying them. (I'm talking a few decades ago.) So I want a soft, brownie type cookie. Got milk? ;)

    P.S. Now I am starving. LOL!

  1. Blogger fb said:

    I can't have lots of broccoli for medical reasons! (all the children are cheering and are jealous of that fact) ;)

  1. Blogger Clare said:

    I'm not really into cooking but I would like to try and make something easy that involves chocolate and is totally fattening lol!

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Aaaaww, thanks Cathy ... maybe you can siphon it through the phone or broadband cable !!!!
    Take care, Meow

  1. Blogger SkyeBlue2U said:

    Ooooooh, sigh, that looks so goood, :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Vani;
    Those bowls are supposed to be small salad bowls, but they are great for soup!

    Stephanie;
    I think he should make me cheesecake with whipped cream on top :)

    Devil Mood;
    I can not eat soup in the summer but it is one of my favourite foods in the winter. Tomorrow I am meeting a colleague for lunch at my favourite soup restaurant. That is, if I am fit; I have come down with a cold tonight :(

    Lois;
    This would be great; I don't have one off hand because there are wonderful brownies at our local grocer and I can not even try to compete with them; I actually usually make brownies from a box (shhh).

    fb;
    Mr.C could not eat broccoli for medical reasons a couple of years ago as well...yes, you are the envy of children everywhere; they are wondering how they can get away with such excuses!

    Clare;
    Brownies from a box for you...Duncan Hines :)

    Meow;
    I wish there were such a siphon!

    SkyeBlue;
    Who knew, green food could look good?...It was and we still have leftovers :)

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    I love trading recipes. I have so many that I've just started sharing with friends and we have so much fun. I'll have to email you some of our best family recipes when I get back from the Corpus Christi.
    I might have to try this one too. I usually get sick after driving down south because of allergies and the climate change.
    I also sent you an email :)
