Broccoli Soup

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Broccoli has never been that kind of vegetable we have always or even see in markets, but thanks to globalisation and the world being a small village we know it, cook it,, and love it :)

Broccoli soup (slightly adapted from here)

250 gm fresh broccoli chopped
3 tbs butter
3 garlic gloves, minced
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1.5 cups milk
1/4 cup flour (mix it with the milk)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
1-2 cups water

  • In a deep pan , melt butter and add onion to it, let it cook for around ten minutes
  • Add the mashed garlic and cook for two minutes
  • Add the broccoli and water, let it cook for few minutes, add salt, pepper, and cinnamon
  • After whisking the flour into milk, add it to the soup, stir till soup becomes thick, this takes around 5-10 minutes
  • Now add the shredded cheese and stir till it melts
  • Serve while still warm.
