Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

Broccoli Soup Recipe

This soup too is easy. And it is almost exactly like the Cauliflower Soup Recipe. The only difference is you need to use 3/4's broccoli and 1/4 cauliflower.

Step 1. Dice some onions and sauté.
Step 2. Cut the flowers only from the cauliflower and broccoli. Use 3/4s portion of broccoli and 1/4 portion of cauliflower.
Step 3. Barely cover the onion and the cauliflower with vegetable stock. Add garlic to taste. This last step is optional. If you use a prepared vegetable stock or broth, you may not need to add salt. If you have fresh stock, then salt to taste.
Step 4. Cook for 1 hour at a simmer, no longer.
Step 5. Blend in a blender until smooth. This takes a long time. I blend for about 10-15 minutes. I like to add some white pepper corns. I add 5-10 for about 3 gallons. You can add 1 or 2 and taste. You can always add more but you can't take away.

Then keep t he soup warm until you are ready to serve. And remember, the better your stock, the better the soup. I serve with a paprika garnish. I use sweet smoked paprika. I already published this soup recipe.
