Modified and was amazing! I modified this recipe a bit because I like to make bigger batches to last a whole week. I used 32 oz of frozen broccoli and added 1 bunch of kale and 1 chopped carrot to the base. I increased the chicken broth to 8 cups and used 4 garlic cloves and 2 onions for increased flavor. I also used both fresh thyme and parsley. The flavor is amazing - I made a spicy turkey sausage to add on top of the soup and the combo is over-the-top. With the meat kale and additional broccoli this soup is very filling and still healthy. Pros: EASY Cons: None
Yummy! Might have been user error but my batch separated a lot. I like the chunkiness so I didn't have a problem with draining some of the broth. Pros: Delicious especially for how healthy it is Cons: Consistency isn't quite right
This was so tasty! I will admit to a couple changes though. I roasted the broccoli (drizzled with a little olive oil and salt) at 425 for about 15 minutes before adding it to the soup. I thought I was going to half the recipe so I cut the broth (homemade turkey bone broth) down to 3 cups and didn't add water. The broccoli had wilted so much that I ended up roasting 8 cups. I left the broth at 3 cups and only added an extra 1/2 cup water. I think it would have been too soupy if I'd added the full 6 cups of liquid. I also put in a pinch of smoked paprika and a few shakes of chipotle Tabasco sauce. I didn't add the cream - it didn't need it (it was so creamy that my husband assumed I'd added it). I pureed in my blender and it was delicious!! I will definitely make again.
Delicious Soup!! I ve been looking for a simple yet delicious broccoli soup for cravings and this one was perfect! I used vegetable broth and carrots instead of celery because it was what I had on hand. I also added rosemary instead of thyme personal preference and didn t add any cream since I had an upset stomach. Let me tell you even with all the changes it was still so rich and delicious. Perfect vegan version. I plan to add cream and cheddar to my next batch this recipe can be tweaked to your preference and still work!
