Tonight’s Dinner

We definitely missed my home cooking on vacation!  This recipe is from the Food Network’s Down Home with the Neely’s show.

Broccoli Soup


Recipe By: Down Home with the Neelys 

Yield: 3 to 4 servings


4 tablespoons butter, room temperature

1 1/2 lbs. fresh broccoli

1 large onion, chopped

1 carrot, chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 cups low-sodium chicken broth

1/2 cup cream


Melt 4 tablespoons butter in heavy medium pot over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, onion, carrot, salt and pepper and saute until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, until the flour reaches a blonde color. Add stock and bring to boil. 

Simmer uncovered until broccoli is tender, about 15 minutes. Pour in cream. With an immersion blender, puree the soup. Add salt and pepper, to taste, and then replace the lid back on the pot.
