This is probably the most simplest broccoli soup ever. As I was making the Swedish meal, I wasn't sure if my daughter would like any of the dishes that was making and since she likes broccoli, I searched for 'Swedish Broccoli' and this broccoli soup came up. Traditionally Swedish broccoli soup is served with local cheese and chili tuiles (fancy name for melted cheese crackers), but I didn't have the time to make them, so this is Swedish broccoli soup without the Swedish element in it.
I left the cheese very thick because that's the way I like it. If you want a thinner soup, just add more milk and/ or water.
Recipe adapted from here.
- 3 cups Broccoli florets
- 2 cloves Garlic
- ½ cup Milk
- Salt Pepper & - as needed
- Combine broccoli florets, garlic, 2 cups of water and milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until broccoli is tender.
- Using an immersion blender or in the regular blender, blend the soup until smooth.
- Pour the soup back in to the pan and cook until heated through. Soup is typically served with cheese tuiles.
