Originally, I was planning on adding cream into this broccoli & celery soup but when I pureed it and tasted it afterwards I was really pleased with the way the soup turned out so I felt like there was no need to add the cream anymore. For extra crunch I dressed the soup with some croutons.
There are only 3 main ingredients in this creamy soup – broccoli, celery and onion. That’s it! They should be as fresh as possible – make sure your broccoli has nice dark green color, the stalk is firm to touch. If the stalk is wilted, avoid buying it! If you see any yellow areas in florets – don’t buy it. This means that the broccoli is starting to bloom. As for the celery – if the stalks are firm the celery is fresh.
The same goes for onion. However, I have already bought onions that looked firm but when cut in halves they were gone off inside! This has happened to me a few times with onions bought in a supermarket so I now make sure I buy onions at the local market to avoid throwing half of them in the bin!
