How To Make A Simple Broccoli Soup [Bread Thickening Method]

How To Make A Broccoli Soup [Bread Thickening Method]

I have made a simple broccoli soup here with 1 head of broccoli, garlic. The broccoli is prepared by the florets being cut from the stalk. The florets can be fairly small and this will help the soup cook quicker.

I have used 3 cloves of garlic in the soup. I also added 3 slices of diced bread into the soup to thicken the soup.  

Ingredients To Make The Soup

  1.   Broccoli   x 1 Head
  2.   Garlic        x 3 Cloves
  3.   Veg Stock x 400ml   
  4.   3 Slices Of White Bread 

Two Heads Of Broccoli

  4. Slice the crusts off 3 slices of bread and dice into small cubes
  5. Add the diced bread to the soup in batches and blend each time

The broccoli soup has been finished by adding a swirl of cream onto the soup. The cream looks great on the surface of the finished soup.
