#FoodforSoul - When God breathed His life into you, He put a crown on your head—a crown of glory and honor. Your perception of yourself will determine what kind of life you live. If you see yourself as average, guilty because of past mistakes or less than, that’s going to keep you in mediocrity. - Joel Osteen

Note




    1. Do not waste the broccoli stem. Peel the stem. Roughly fine chop them and add them to the stock along with the florets. Fine chopping helps it cook easier.

 

    1. If you want it to be really creamy (as per its name) , you can add a few tbspns of cream at the end after blending.

 

    1. If you do not have a hand blender, transfer the soup to a mixie when cool and grind it. Transfer back to the pan and simmer it.
