About this recipe

This Cream of Broccoli soup with burnt Garlic and Orange is perfect, either you serve it hot with your favorite bread or sip it cold as is, it taste heaven. Instead of cream, I used low fat milk which makes the soup light and healthy. As broccoli after blending has a thick creamy texture, adding milk instead of cream will keep the broccoli flavor intact making it light on your tummy. You will be mesmerized with the rustic aroma of broccoli sauted in butter with garlic and herbs. A tinch of burnt garlic and orange dressing on the top will make this soup a pure delight to your taste buds.
