Long time readers will already know. I am the broccoli whisperer.
There are a lot of super powers out there and, to be honest, I wish my super power was something sexier - like invisibility or the ability to fly. Instead I'm the champion of getting broccoli devoured with gusto.
thermomix cream of broccoli soup
Yield 4 serves
A cream of broccoli soup recipe so good that the kids will ask for seconds!
100g cheddar cheese
1 tbs vegetable stock paste
salt and pepper
Weigh 100g cubed cheddar into the TM bowl. Process at speed 6 for 5 seconds. Remove the cheese from the TM bowl and set aside.
Add 900g water, 750g broccoli florets and 1 tablespoon of vegetable stock paste to the TM bowl. Cook for 20 minutes, temperature 100C, speed 1.
Add 200g cream, cook 5 minutes, temperature 100C, speed 1.
Add the grated cheese and process for a further 1 minute on speed 2.
Serve with buttered toasted soldiers.
I've made this recipe in my thermo so many times I've lost count, but recently I've had feedback that this quantity of broccoli might be an overload.
I cut the broccoli into small florets, but you might like to process it before adding the water in step 2.
My souped power* doesn't just apply to cream of broccoli soup (click here for the non-thermomix version)!

Oh yes, that is dinner sorted for tonight. I used to make a broccoli soup which was a bit complicated and involved adding broccoli at different times etc etc so a straightforward Thermie one is a great improvement.
And I think getting kids to eat bulk broccoli is a genuine superpower.... mine do eat it now, at last... I can retire happy.
hi i love your recipe, how can you fit 900g of water plus 750g of broccoli?? i added 390g and it was already full! thx

Hi Pablo, I have a TM5. I’m not sure what model you have. Did you cut the broccoli into small florets? It should fit. I make it regularly. Hope that helps, Amanda
With a fair amount of salt, this is a delicious recipe. BUT. It broke the blades on my TM5. The quantities are definitely too great for a thermomix. I recommend adapting the recipe (either halving the recipe or dealing with the vegetables in batches).

Goodness Gabi! It broke the blades of your thermo? That's terrible. I've made it loads of times in mine without incident but maybe I've been lucky. I'll add a note in the recipe now. Cheers, A
I loved this recipe thank you! It told me initially something was blocking the blades so I went to speed 4 for 10 seconds before adding water and worked a treat!! So delicious!
Thank you so much for sharing!
I had just one head of broccoli (~ 500 g) and also found that PLENTY for my TM5. It makes a thinner but still very delicious soup, so thank you for the recipe!
Absolutely delish! I blitzed the broccoli a bit before adding water and also found I had to blitz speed 6 for 20sec before adding cheese for a smoother texture. I also only had 700g of broccoli so cut the water down by 50g also. Then a good season of salt and pepper at the end. Soooo yummy ? thnks for sharing.
I used this recipe as a base and modified slightly to my liking. I added onion and garlic in the first step, and although it was delicious I found it to be extreeeeemely watery so I added a potato and cooked down further and blitzed to thicken and finished off with a spoonful of Greek yoghurt. Absolutely love how tasty and easy this was! Will be doing it again, for sure!
Hello! Thank you for the recipe. May I substitute cheddar with parmesan cheese? I do not have cheddar cheese.

I'm sure that will work fine Sylvia. Enjoy!
