Broccoli And Garlic Soup

Continuing the series of soups with winter/ spring. Here is another creamy soup made with broccoli and garlic 🙂

The entire soup is cooked and simmered in one pot. In this recipe I have not used cream. I pureed broccoli along with milk, made the soup smooth and creamy.

Broccoli soup can be served plain or with toasted bread.
