2 ½cupof chicken broth! You can replace it with vegetable stock if you prefer.
½cupof shredded cheese
In a large pot, add the broth or stock
Add the broccoli cut in chunks
Cover and bring to boil
Reduce the heat and let simmer until broccoli is tender
In a food processor, add the mixture and blend to pure
If your blender allows it, you can do this in one step, otherwise, divide the mixture and do it in two parts
Transfer the cream of broccoli into a clean pan
Add cheese! Leave some for decoration!
Add milk and heat! Do not bring to boil! Some people prefer cream: The taste is better with cream, but the calories are higher! You can replace the milk with a low-fat cream, but I couldn’t find any in my area.
