This soup goes down as one of the easiest soups ever. It’s perfect for when you have no dinner plans and a bunch of broccoli that needs to be eaten which was recently the case in our house. Just 6 ingredients and I bet you already have most of them in your pantry. This soup would work for vegans/vegetarians if you use veggie broth and those that are gluten-free. It’s a soup for everyone! As long as they like broccoli.
Garlic and onions are sautéed with curry powder. Add in broccoli and broth and let it cook.
Puree once broccoli is soft and tender and dinner is served. Some crunchy croutons or a grilled cheese would compliment this soup perfectly!
Curried Broccoli Soup
Makes about 6 servings
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion, red or white works
1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
6-7 cups of chopped broccoli (or one large head of broccoli)
4 cups of broth, chicken or veggie
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large soup pot, saute onions in olive oil over medium heat. Once onions are soft and translucent, reduce heat to low and add in garlic. Stir 1-2 minutes. Add curry powder and stir to combine. Add in chopped broccoli (it does not have to be finely chopped.) Stir to mix with other ingredients. Add in 4 cups of your favorite broth. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce down to a simmer. Stir occasionally and cook until broccoli is soft enough to break up with a spoon, about 30 minutes. Use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree the soup. If the soup appears too thick, add in an additional 1/2-1 cup broth until at desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil.
Good to the last drop!
