Simple Broccoli Soup

Simple Broccoli Soup - NotEnoughCinnamon.com

I am not a broccoli person. I even used to hate broccoli – and now I’m ok with it. But you guys, this broccoli soup is OUTSTANDING. Like gimme-some-more-right-now outstanding. I’m not sure why, but you just can’t taste this little bitter taste that I hate  don’t like in broccoli (and cauliflower and Brussel sprouts and cabbage for that matter). Broccoli-haters: you know what I’m talking about. For you – people that I don’t really get and who just love it: all you need to know is that this soup is another glorious way to eat your favorite veggie.

For some reason, I keep coming back to broccoli. Or it keeps coming back to me… Whatever. I mean, why did I try to come up with a broccoli soup in the first place, if I don’t even like broccoli? Something’s wrong with me. I’m sure glad I did though because this soup meets all my yummy-soup criteria : it’s creamy but there’s not a single dollop of cream in it, it’s tasty but super easy to make and it’s comforting for all the reasons previously mentioned. One last detail! I’ve heard it’s been freezing cold in some parts of the US, so obviously this soup is the best thing that can happen to you right now; and for you Australian folks: it’s delicious eaten cold!
