Secret Ingredient Broccoli Soup

This recipe is from Ms.enPlace weekly link party. It was the top viewed link and I could tell by the ingredients that I would love it.

I adapted the recipe from The Kitchen Cookie.


1 1/2 - 2 cups steamed broccoli ( used frozen broccoli)
1 tablespoon butter ( used olive oil)
2 tablespoons chopped onion 
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 avocado 
3 tablespoon heavy cream ( didn't use)
salt & pepper to taste 

Saute the onion in butter until tender and it starts to caramelize.

Add onion to food processor or blender. Add the avocado, chicken broth and the broccoli and pulse until smooth.

Pour into a saucepan and heat.

If you want to add the heavy cream, add it at this point and stir and season to taste.

Garnish with cheese 


  1. Broccoli and avocado? Now there's a combo I never would have thought of putting together. I doubt I could get Bob to try it because he doesn't like puréed soups but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

    Thanks Linda and Martha! :)

  2. I will be trying this one Linda. Thank you.

  3. Thanks for the shout out Linda and for letting me know you tried it!:) I'm glad you liked it! Have a blessed day!
