Comfort Food: Cream of Broccoli or Cauliflower Soup

It’s that time of year to grab a blanket and a movie and snuggle on the couch. What better way than with some good ole comfort food: soup. I thought I’d share some reader’s fave recipes over the next few days. If you’ve got a recipe you love, email me at mummydeals at yahoo.

This is Mama Boone’s recipe.

Here is a favorite of mine. Serve it with a sandwich or warm fresh, homemade bread! When you see a sale on the broccoli or cauliflower, chop it up, measure it, and freeze it for later use.


  • 6 cups water
  • 9-12 teaspoons chicken bouillion
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 cups broccoli or cauliflower
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon thyme, optional

Bring the above to a boil and boil for 10 minutes or more.

1 stick margarine

Then stirring until there are no lumps mix:
½ – 1 cup flour
1 quart milk

Add milk and flour mixture to soup. Stir and cook until thickened. Makes a large pot!
