Cream of Broccoli Soup

I had some wonderful broccoli and wanted to make a dish for a dinner with friends. I decided to make a broccoli soup. I used what I had on hand. Luckily had some tomato juice to add as well. It added a nice touch of acidity to the dish. Just a few more ingredients and the soup was finished. It went over very well at the party. A nice first course for a chilly evening.


Cream of Broccoli Soup

2 T. oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 qt. stock- I had turkey but chicken or even vegetable would work well.

2 c. tomato juice

6-8 cups chopped fresh broccoli

3 c. half and half

salt and pepper to taste

 hot sauce to taste

fresh grated nutmeg, to taste

Heat oil in soup pot and add onion cooking until tender. Add stock and tomato juice and bring to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook until broccoli is tender about 5 minutes. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup- or puree in a blender in batches. If blending hot soup in a blender only do small amounts. Remove inner ring from the lid. Place lid on blender and then cover with a folded kitchen towel. Mixture will splash up. When smooth add the half and half and seasonings. Heat through and adjust seasonings of needed.  Serves 6.
