Cream of Broccoli Soup

Nothing beats homemade soup, and this is a perennial favorite on cold winter days. The soup is thickened with a small potato, while a bit of cream adds a rich, mellow note. If you don't include dairy in your diet, leave it out; the soup will still be delicious.

4 Servings


1 lb

broccolie ( trimmed, stalkspeeled, florets and stalks cut into small pieces)


potato (about 4 ounces) (peeled and cut into 1/4-inch cubes)

1 cup

sliced leeks (white and light green parts only)

4 cups

good-quality chicken stock

⅓ cup

heavy (whipping) cream

½ tsp

ground white pepper (or to taste)

Kosher salt


Combine the broccoli, potato, leeks, and chicken stock in a large pot and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, and cook until the vegetables are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to a food processor and purée; it may be necessary to do this in batches. Return the purée to the pot and add the cream. Reheat gently and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
