Creamy Broccoli Soup
Before I even had the chance to freeze the Creamy Curry Onion Soup from my previous post, my five year old wanted some soup. He loves broccoli, so I decided to add some steamed organic broccoli to the soup. I warmed the creamy curry onion soup first and then blended it with my hand blender. Once that was done I add the steamed broccoli and some of the water that it steamed in to the pot of creamy curry onion soup.
I then took my hand blender again with all contents in the pot and blended to creamy goodness. You can obviously add more water (from the steam broccoli if there is any left) or broth to bring cream consistency to your soup. I also topped with a little bit are fresh parmigiana cheese. The flavors from the Creamy Curry Onion Soup brought a nice body of flavor to this version of a Creamy Broccoli Soup. Need I say more. Left overs brought to life once again. Enjoy!
