  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in medium sized stock pot, and saute onion and celery until tender. Add broccoli and broth, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.
  3. In small saucepan, over medium-heat melt 3 tablespoons butter, stir in flour and add milk. Stir until thick and bubbly, and add to soup. Season with pepper and serve.

This recipe is perfectly titled; this soup is the bomb! Rather than puree, I followed another member's suggestion and just let the broth and broccoli boil down, but after 10 minutes, I took som...

This soup is wonderful. I made only minor adjustments to suit my tastes. I left out the celery and added fresh garlic, more onion and red pepper flakes. I also added a bit of cream cheese whe...

This was a great base to start w/but I tweaked it a bit b/c I'm vegetarian and wanted a Broccoli Cheese Soup. This will be my permanent recipe, b/c it was perfect. My changes: 1/2 lg red onion...

I would give it 5, but I made adjustments. I added a clove of garlic to the onion/celery mix. I also added 1 shredded carrot to the broccoli. I used veg. base instead of chicken to make it veget...
