In this video, you’ll see how to make broccoli soup with Cheddar croutons. Chef John’s theory of vegetable soups is simple. The star of the show should be the featured vegetable. And that’s what you get here, a simple broccoli soup made with broccoli simmered in stock (chicken or veggie stock or even water) until tender, then pureed and seasoned simply so as not to mask the flavors of the broccoli. This is a classic, very simple technique for making any homemade vegetable soup—cauliflower, asparagus, artichoke, potato, basically any vegetable you want to turn into a soup. You’ll also see how to make the delicious Cheddar croutons, which really make this soup special. They're the perfect contrast of taste and texture to the broccoli soup. Give it a try!
