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!
