I have made many, many batches of Cream of Broccoli Soup through the years but always used regular broccoli.
I had a some broccoli rabe in my refrigerator and decided to experiment with it. Since broccoli rabe has a less bitter and milder taste than regular broccoli, it was worth a bit of experimentation.
WOW. The soup was so unbelievably creamy and mild. I suggest you give this recipe a try soon.
For dinner you can serve alongside salad for a complete meal. Trust me, this soup is hardy so you don’t need any bread.
Please feel free to let me know how it turns out!
I was asked by another blog to review a box of Indian curry spices and write a post a while back. I enjoyed the amazing spices but I am being completely honest when I say, curry is not something I would like to eat every night of the week however, it is a dish I occasionally crave.
I like adding the sliced avocado topping because, in addition to adding lots of nutrients, it tones down the spice a bit.
I have always been a fan of soup but found that mushroom soup can either be too rich or too bland.
By adding spinach to the mix, it not only increases the nutritional content but also adds more flavor to the dish.
This is great, served alone, for dinner or lunch or with a side green salad.
