Done right, broccoli soup is lovely. I do however favor the au naturel version of this soup v/s the heavily cheesed up, rouxed up one.
A challenge however is to end up with a soup that is creamy in texture rather than a gritty pureed boiled veggie type version. The addition of a tiddly bit of cream does wonders for this but the true magic lies in the addition of fresh dill in the puree.
I find that cooking dill for however little amount of time kills the fragrance of this gorgeous herb. So I've opted to add it to the soup at the very end, just as is. The herb drizzle oil, a simplified version of a basic pesto is lovely especially paired with the creamy goat cheese.
All in all this is a dressed up version of what is otherwise a homey comfort soup. But then again as we women know, accessories make all the difference!
