It’s important to eat your greens, but it’s also important to get them in a flavorsome way.
Step 1: In a medium stock pot, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter.
Step 2: Add the onion and celery, and sauté them until they’re tender.
Step 3: Get the broccoli and chicken broth into your pot, and leave it all to simmer for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Next, get your soup mixture into your blender, but only about halfway. Give your blender a few short bursts, then leave it on to make a proper, smooth soup.
Step 5: Keep doing this, until all the soup has been blended, pouring it into a clean pot as you go.
Step 6: With a clean, smaller saucepan, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter, over a medium heat.
Step 7: Add the flour and the milk, stirring it all in well together.
Step 8: Add the butter/flour/milk mixture you’ve just made into the main pot of soup, and mix that it well.
Step 9: Add as much ground black pepper as you like, and then you’re ready to serve.
This is a great way to use up broccoli that you bought with great intentions of healthy eating!
