This tasty and filling broccoli soup with root vegetables and roux is an easy-to-make first dinner course. Vegetable soups can take the form of a cream or remain unmixed, i.e. with pieces of vegetables and additives. Personally, I like both forms and which one I choose when cooking the soup depends on the type of soup and the ingredients used to prepare it. The recipe for broccoli soup below is a recipe for a soup with pieces of vegetables, in which there is no need to mix anything. Therefore, it is a perfect soup for people who do not have a blender at home 😉
