Broccoli and Potato Soup

Jump to Recipe

My parents used to own a sandwich store in a busy downtown office building in Canada.  We used to hang out there over the school holidays and I remember a delicious broccoli soup on the menu.  I imagine it was that way because of the lashings of cream and salt in the ingredients.  Whatever it was, it’s one of the few dishes that I remember from those days – and as a food memory, it deserves its time in the limelight.

These days, soups are an easy and tasty way to pack in the vegetables.  This recipe actually makes mushy broccoli taste good!  To lighten it up, I use potato and milk instead of cream. 

Smooth and creamy soups are the staple for the Thermomix.  A ‘one-pot’ dish that requires no extra equipment – it’s a no brainer.   If you don’t have a Thermomix, this recipe can be done with a pot on the stove and finished with a stick blender.

    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.
