I just made cream of broccoli soup for the very first time.
It's really rather tasty for my first time cream of soup, if I do say so myself. :lips:
Problem: It's gritty/grainy. :eek: Like the broccoli isn't *creamed* smoothly.
(Hope that makes sense! :crazy:)
I started with sauteed onions, then added fresh broccoli not frozen, with some chicken stock/broth.
Boiled turned down to simmer about 10 minutes.
Mixed with a hand blender.
Added heavy cream, a little more broth, then some mild cheddar. Salt/pepper and nutmeg to taste.
What did I do wrong? Is the hand blender not strong enough? Or did I not cook the broccoli long enough? Does it need to cook longer?
I'd like to make lots of soups this season (health reasons) and cream of broccoli cheese is dh favorite! I'd hate to spoil it for him lol!
