Roasted Broccoli Soup

Roasted Broccoli Soup

by Barbara Lee on March 24, 2013

It’s quick, easy and highly nutritious.  And it tastes yummy too.  What is it?  Broccoli soup!  March is that unpredictable month when it can suddenly be a warm summer day or it can decide to punish with cold rains and wind.  Either way, a vegetable soup is a welcomed meal.

Many soup recipes take a few hours to prepare but this one has just a few simple steps.  I roast all the veggies together to bring out their sweetness, puree them and combine with stock.  Easy.  Many broccoli soup recipes add milk or cream and piles of cheddar cheese.  I’m sure it’s tasty, but I’d rather not be overwhelmed with dairy.    Let’s lighten up.  After all, it’s spring!
