Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup
I am not going to give it a rating because I changed a lot of things. (they are making me rate it to submit, I give myself 5 stars!!
First, I added 3 whole cloves of garlic with celery, onion, butter mixture.
Second, I added 1 good sized potato cut into 2 inch chunks
Three, I added carrots (about 2 cups worth whole baby sized)
Four, I used a whole head of broccoli.
same amount of water/stock
brought to a boil then dropped to a simmer till potatoes were done (about 30 mins)
I did blend the soup in stages as I had left everything very, VERY chunky.
For the roux, I doubled the butter and flour to 6T each as per another poster but used 2 cups of milk.
Salt and peppered the veggies before mixing in my roux.
It is going to be thick, like, wall paper paste thick, but I like it that way.
HOLY COW! This is the BEST FREAKIN' SOUP EVAR!
It reminds me of the cream of vegetable soup from A.O.C. L'aile ou la Cuisse in NYC's West Village on Bleecker.
