  • Soup pot
  • Blender or immersion blender


  • 1/2 white onion roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 4 cups water or vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper


  • In a soup pot add the oil and add the onion for about 6-8 minutes until it is very soft and the edges begin to brown.
  • To prepare broccoli, start by removing the tough stems by cutting off the florets and discarding the thick stem. Then, cut the florets into smaller, bite-sized pieces. Next, add the broccoli to a pot along with water or vegetable stock. Cover the pot and leave it over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes or until the broccoli becomes very soft.
  • When done, add a pinch of salt and pepper and blend until creamy.
  • Check for seasoning and adjust if needed.



  • The broccoli and veggie stock mixture will be hot when you transfer it to your blender. Transfer it carefully, and make sure your blender is heat-proof. If it isn’t, just let the broccoli mixture cool before blending.
  • This soup only has two main ingredients – onion and broccoli. Make sure they are the freshest possible to ensure you end up with a new and tasty broccoli soup.
  • There’s no need to dice the onion into small pieces before sautéing. They end up blended into the soup, so larger chunks are fine.
  • When sautéing the onions in olive oil, use low-to-medium heat. You want the onions to be translucent, not browned or burned.
  • Add a clove or two of minced garlic and sauté with the onion for added flavor. If you want a heartier soup, add some cubed potatoes there.
