TWENTY MINUTE CREAM OF BROCCOLI SOUP

I don’t usually share food recipes, and when I do, they’re pretty few and far between…I am by no means a food blogger, but I just have to share this quick and easy cream of broccoli soup recipe with you today. It is SO EASY, there is no excuse not to make it – and honestly, you can substitute the broccoli for any veggie – cauliflower, spinach, carrots, I think you can experiment and make it what you want. I’ve made this soup with the ‘traditional version’ as well, which takes a little more prep and cooking time, so I’ll be sharing both ways of making it in today’s post. I’ll be very honest with you – as much as I enjoy it, I have very little time or energy to cook, so meal planning is often a stress for me. This cream of broccoli soup recipe will save you so much time, you will be jumping for joy…it’s so yummy too, you’ll want to save this one, trust me! Oh, and you can make it ahead of time, and even freeze it if you want. This is a quick post, so let’s get right to it!

When we built our home, we designed the layout of the kitchen for easy meal prep – the end of the island is where I do all of it and I can easily turn around to cook at the stove, and navigate either to the right or left, to the refrigerator or sink…this is where it all happens. In case you’re new here, we recently updated our kitchen with brass hardware and it makes such a HUGE difference in this space. You can take the tour here and see it all.

I said this would be quick so let’s get back to this delicious recipe! You can scroll down to print the actual recipe, and as I mentioned, I’m sharing the quick version and the traditional method as well. Trust me these are keepers, you’ll want to save them!

    With so many seasonal veggies available right now it is a perfect time to make this soup. I hate to wish my summers away, but I am always excited for fall and all it has to offer here in Canada…the fashions, leaves changing and the yummy soups and stews. Woo hoo!!

    Hey Tam, I made your soup last night… and OMG so easy and soooo good!! Both of my kids loved it. And actually I am making a second batch tonight it was so good and a no brainer;) I used the broccoli in a bag from Costco. Thank you for the recipe and keep on sharing those quick dinner tricks.
