Broccoli Vegetable Soup


3 people made this

This is a creamy thick soup that can be thinned down by adding more vegetable stock. I also use this as a base for baked pasta dishes.

I have a recipe just like this one. I use both cauliflower, and broc., Use turnip instead of parsnip as my family doesn't like them. Grate all the hard veg., dice the celery and chop the broc., and cauli., Apart from that this is the self same recipe and is so good. I will try it as a baked pasta sauce. Thanks for that hint. - 14 May 2012
