Creamed Broccoli Soup

“Broccoli, often called “little mini-tree” is extremely beneficial for our health. It has an overload of nutrients that are heart friendly. Broccoli is high in fiber so it is excellent for weight-loss and for diabetics. It also provides a wide range of vitamins to the system. Here is a lovely broccoli soup which uses wholesome Verka Butter and Verka Milk. It is pleasing to the eye and light on the stomach!”


Creamed Broccoli Soup Ingredients:

  • – 8 tbsp Verka Butter
  • – 2/3 cup maida
  • – ¼ cup chopped onion
  • – 4 cup florets of broccoli
  • – 5 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • – ¾ cup Verka Full Fat Milk
  • – Salt and pepper to taste

 

Method:

  • – Use a heavy pan and fry the onions in 2 tbsp Verka Butter.
  • – Add broccoli and saute further. Remove a few florets for garnishing, then add 3 cups of stock and bring to a simmer.
  • – Cool and liquidize the veggies and stock in a blender.
  • – Add the leftover Verka Butter to the pan and roast the maida till the raw smell disappears. Turn off the heat and pour in the rest of the stock. Keep whisking while you do so to prevent any lump formation.
  • – Now return the pureed broccoli to the pan, add salt and pepper and bring to a boil. The maida will thicken the soup and make it velvety.
  • – Check seasoning, ladle out into bowls and serve, garnished with the broccoli florets.

 

Note: A little garlic may be added for that extra dimension. Chop and add after the onions have been sautéed. You may also trickle a spoonful of Verka Cream over the soup when it’s ready. A handful of boiled peas or noodles can be added to make the soup more filling.
