CREAM OF BROCCOLI SOUP
Kneaders Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Recipe
2 cups of frozen broccoli florets
1/2 pint cream
1/2 cube butter (use it to fry up onions with some olive oil)
1/2 medium onion (or more) diced
2 stalks celery finely diced
2 cups milk
A cup or so of water added
2-3 tablespoons flour
1/2 to 3/4 cup mashed potato flakes to thicken
1/2 cup finely grated cheese of your choice
3 bacon pieces microwaved and crumbled crispy
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon season salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
pepper to taste
Start your soup dicing the onion up in a fry pan with a little olive oil mixed with some butter. Then when they are caramelized. Add the flour and a little milk to make a roux or a flour gravy. Keep adding milk a bit at a time till you have a thin white sauce. Add the diced celery, the broccoli florets, and milk.
Just steam your broccoli for 3 minutes in the microwave covered with plastic wrap.
After letting that all simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, add some water and potato flakes to get the perfect consistency. Add the seasonings, tasting as you go. Crumbled up 3 pieces of microwaved bacon into the soup when serving. Cheese is added last.
