Cream of Broccoli and Carrot Soup

A colorful, light soup that makes a good first course for a special meal. Substitute any other vegetables of your choice.

Yield: Serves 8-10


  • 4 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup peeled, chopped carrots
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups whipping cream
  • Salt and pepper


Place vegetables in large saucepan, cover with 4 cups chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer gently until tender; do not drain. Puree through food mill or in a blender; set aside. Over low heat melt butter in heavy saucepan, stir in flour until well blended, and gradually add cream. Add pureed vegetables with broth, plus remaining 1 cup broth. Add salt and pepper to taste and heat mixture thoroughly before serving. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, or reserve a few pieces of vegetable before pureeing and use to garnish each bowl. This soup can be made a day ahead and heated just before serving.

    Flour for a cream soup recipe? I use a grated medium potato for each 4 cups of stock,that way even celiacs can have it.
