Broccoli is a healthy vegetable. As everyone knows this vegetable has a strong mustard flavor that makes us to rather strongly dislike this veggie. Previously i had shared Broccoli Rice recipe with you, which does not have the mustard taste.

       This is yet another delicacy made out of Broccoli. Perfectly suits this cool climate.The chicken stock and the celery neutralizes the mustard flavor and you don't feel that you are having broccoli at any sip.


Broccoli, chopped- 300 grams
Onion, chopped- 1
Celery, chopped- 2 tablespoons (optional)
Chicken broth/ stock-500ml (I have used maggi chicken stock cube- 1 tablet dissolved in 1/2 litre of hot water)
Butter- 2 teaspoons
All purpose flour/ Maida- 1 1/2 tablespoons
Milk- 1 cup
Pepper- 1/4 teaspoon
Bread, diced- 1/2 slice

  • Melt a teaspoon of butter in a pan and add the onion and cook for a minute. Then add the celery; cook till both becomes soft and you get the nice aroma. 
  • Add the broccoli and chicken broth; cover the vessel with a lid and and simmer till the florets cooks to soft with out leaving the vibrant green color (cut one of the cooking floret using knife. It has to cut easily).
  • Transfer the whole mixture in to a blender and make a fine puree.
  • In  a deep pan add a teaspoon of butter and add the all purpose flour; cook only  for a minute to avoid the floury taste in the soup.
  • Then add the milk and using a wire whisk to combine well without forming any lumps in the cream.
  • Allow the milk mixture to boil and become thick creamy consistency by constant  stirring.
  • Now add the pureed Broccoli and mix well and allow the whole soup get heated up.
  • Season the soup with pepper and salt. Serve with garnishing above prepared cream on top of the soup.
  • Cut a slice of bread into cubes and fry/ toast them until golden and serve.(crouton)
  • Note: I have not added any salt in this recipe as the stock cube contains enough salt for this soup. You can add salt if you feel you require some more.
  • Can replace butter with olive oil and to make it more healthy.
