Broccoli and Potato Soup

My parents used to own a sandwich store in a busy downtown office building.  We used to hang out there over the school holidays and I remember a delicious cream of broccoli soup.  Here is my attempt at a healthier version with potato and milk instead of cream…

    Make this one it’s delicious! I didn’t have any stock concentrate in my fridge so used herbamare, (herb salt) plus I used fresh cream instead of milk. Also, I used sweet potato in place of normal potato.

      Glad you liked it… How was the colour using sweet potato? Never thought to do that with this recipe – great idea!
