Spicy Broccoli Cream Soup

 

Let’s stay in the green color tone, even though I am starting to see more of yellow and brown around.

I was very afraid of broccoli until a year ago, when I decided to try to make a cream soup

with some broccoli I had bought “because is healthy” and kept in the refrigerator for too long.

I liked it so I tried some other recipes using broccoli…  it’s just definetly not one of my favorite veggies.

So this is for those who turn their head away when they see broccoli in their plate… it worked for me.

Add the broccoli and the peas.

Let cook for 4 – 5 minutes.

Add the water and the condiments.

Let it cook on low heat until broccoli is completely cooked (very soft).

Blend the veggies and ajust the thicknesss as you puree them.

Last add as much sour cream as you like.

Use parmesan or goat cheese (or even blue cheese if you feel adventurous :)) when you serve the soup.
