Anna's broccoli soup is so quick and easy to make. It's creamy and so flavorful, it'll become one of your favorite easy soup recipes. Need a quick lunch? Need a light supper? This cream soup fits the bill. You can make it within about 30 minutes. Crushed garlic is usually added to the onions when you are cooking them. This I leave out (my husband's not too fond of garlic, so I seldom use it).
There are many variations you can make as well. I like adding some cubed raw potatoes to the soup, but you can leave these out if you wish.
Like the soup above? You'll love looking at and making more of Oma's soups. All so quick and easy!
You can cook just like Oma using Quick Fix Soups, 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints.
Recipe cards are included. All the help you need to make traditional German soups quickly and easily.
If you prefer a soup with a bit of "bite", you can omit the blending step and serve the soup as a chunky-style soup.
What makes this soup "German". Well, it's using nutmeg as one of the spices and, then, of course, there's the addition of the sour cream! Germans love their cream. The richer, the better. If you'd rather, you can cut the fat level of the sour cream.
Another option is to replace some of the broth with 10% or 5% cream or milk. Each lowering of the "fat" level will reduce the creaminess of the soup, but it'll still taste great.
If you find the soup is too thin (if you added cream or milk), you can thicken it with some cornstarch dissolved in a bit of cold water and added at the end until you have the right consistency.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
