  • Summary

    This soup is super creamy in texture, but it contains very little actual cream. The butter and flour mixture -- what's called a roux -- gives it body and silkiness.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
    • 1 medium yellow onion, diced small
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
    • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 pound broccoli, cut into florets, stems peeled and chopped
    • 1/4 cup heavy cream
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
