I have been making this Broccoli Soup for a few years now...easy to put together with no cheese well for both warmer and colder of favorite soups

Broccoli Soup with milk and potatoes mmskitchenbites

Broccoli Soup


  • Olive oil/Butter, 1 tbsp
  • Garlic, finely chopped, 2-3 cloves
  • Onion, finely chopped, 1 medium
  • Celery, finely chopped, 1 stalk 
  • Potato, finely chopped, 1 medium
  • Broccoli, chopped  including stems, 2 medium size
  • Veg or chicken stock ,about 2 cups ( or a mix of broth+ water or even just water)
  • Milk, about a cup and a half ( I use double toned milk, you can use toned, full cream)
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste


Heat olive oil/butter in a deep pan. 

On a medium low flame, sauté garlic, onion and celery for about 5 to 6 minutes, till onions soften. 

Add potato and broccoli to the pan. Stir and let look for a couple of minutes.

Add the broth and milk to the vegetables in the pan. 

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer till the vegetables become tender.

Let the soup  cool slightly, and then blend to a smooth puree. 

Add salt &pepper to taste.

Heat gently right before serving.

You can top with either crispy fried shallots or crispy fried bacon.
