Broccoli Stem Soup Recipe

Why not love the healthy and delicious broccoli stems as much as their florets?


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 6 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 8 cups broccoli stems, sliced into thin coins
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • whole milk


In a large pot sauté the onion until they begin to soften, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté, stirring, for another minute. Add the broccoli stems and continue until they begin to soften, about 5-10 minutes. Add the broth and simmer until the broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes.

Puree the soup in batches in a blender or food processor. Season to taste with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and whole milk.
