  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a stockpot over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in the melted butter until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add potato and broccoli stems; generously season with salt and pepper. Pour broth into potato mixture, cover, and simmer until potatoes are softened, about 10 minutes.
  2. Mix broccoli florets into soup and simmer until broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. Blend soup with an immersion blender until smooth.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk flour, milk, and heavy cream into melted butter. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk milk mixture until bubbling and thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk thickened milk mixture into soup until incorporated; adjust salt and pepper.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Remove a few broccoli florets before pureeing with immersion blender if desired; return florets to soup before serving.

When the hubby says mmmm with every bite, I know it is fab!

I am not a great cook and this recipe was easy to follow and turned out wonderfully! Probably the best broccoli soup I've tasted! Thank you! Changes I made: I removed the broccoli and potatoes...

Turned out great even with these changes: halved the onion qty and doubled the garlic qty; only used one tiny potato, but added few stalks of celery (added crunch!); used my own veggie stock fro...

I have some issues with recipes as written. 8-10 mins is way too long to sauté onions, but more importantly you never cook garlic as long as onions, or garlic turns bitter. Garlic only needs abo...

Delicious just as written!! I don't feel like it's needs the whipping cream though, the flour mixture thickens up really nicely with just milk or light cream. I couldn't resist throwing some s...

I tried it like the recipe says the first time and it got 5 stars, but the second time I shredded two potatoes, left out the whipping cream and changed the milk to evaporated milk. I left the g...
