Anna's Cream of Broccoli Soup

➤ by Gerhild Fulson

Anna's broccoli soup aka Brokkolisuppe 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 (Hubby's not too fond of garlic, so I seldom use it).

For the full list of ingredients & detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. But before you scroll, there’s important & interesting stuff to know right below.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

If you're wanting something just a bit richer and creamier, then you'll want to try Andy's Broccoli Cheese Soup ... a favorite of my granddaughters.

Broccoli Soup Tips

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.

Oma says,

If you've never before used this wonderful green veggie, this is an easy recipe to learn how to cook broccoli.

To prepare the broccoli, trim off the ends of the stalks. Cut off the stalks and chop the rest of the broccoli. Take the stalks and peel them. Then, chop the stalks and add them as well.

For the broth, you can use water and bouillon cubes. I like using a mixture of chicken and vegetable cubes, but one or the other would work as well.
