Creamy Broccoli Soup

2 cups water
1/2 tsp onion salt
4 cups broccoli florets
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
6 Tbsp butter
6 Tbsp flour
3 cups chicken broth, may substitute vegetable broth
2 cups milk
1 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
1/2 tsp garlic powder


  1. In a large pot bring water and onion salt to boil and add broccoli, celery and carrots. Bring to a boil, drain and set aside.
  2. Saute onions in butter until tender. Stir in flour to form a smooth paste. Slowly add broth and milk, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil, Let boil for 1 minute.
  3. Add vegetables and remaining ingredients. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes until tender.

I like this Creamy Broccoli Soup recipe because most I have seen before it is only broccoli, I like the added texture of the celery and carrots and the added color from the carrots. I usually buy already prepared broccoli florets in a bag for my salads, I enjoying adding broccoli florets to my salads and having it already cut and prepared makes it easy for me to just add to my salads. Well to the reason I brought that fact up=) I found this recipe on the back of the broccoli bag and I tried it and I am very pleased with this recipe. It is hearty enough to have a Souper Supper=} Serve with some fresh crusty bread, if you desire.
