White House Broccoli Soup Recipe

Soup's on With Michelle Obama's Broccoli

Michelle Obama's cookbook is slated to hit bookstores this week, so here's another taste of what you might find in the book: a simple, easy-to-throw-together broccoli soup. If you want to skip out on blanching the broccoli, you could easily precook the florets in the microwave for a few minutes. To puree the ingredients, use your blender or, for an even creamier texture, use a food mill.

While this White House soup didn't initially call for any toppings, I added a dollop of light sour cream and a drizzle of jalapeño olive oil to boost the soup's body and flavor. Serve this with a spring salad, French bread, and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc for a fresh and veggie-filled dinner. Get this simple recipe and read more.
