Broccoli Soup

Broccoli Soup

4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
3 pounds fresh broccoli ( a bag of broccoli at Costco will do this trick.- Then you will have some to give away!! Although you might think twice as this is such a tasty soup!!)
1 large onion, chopped

5 shallots chopped
Kosher Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup cream or milk. (make it as low fat as you want)

Melt 4 tablespoons butter in heavy medium pot over medium-high heat.

Add broccoli, onion, salt and pepper and saute until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes.

Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, until the flour reaches a blonde color. Add stock and bring to boil.
Simmer uncovered until broccoli is tender, about 15 minutes.

Pour in cream.

With an immersion blender, puree the soup.

Add salt and pepper, to taste, and then replace the lid back on the pot. Serve hot and with an artisisan bread of your choice
