This easy recipe for a creamy broccoli cappuccino is a nice appetizer for a Christmas dinner. Made of fresh veggies and a homemade vegetable broth.
Today the warm entree of our Christmas dinner. A creamy broccoli cappuccino.
Made of fresh vegetables and I used a delicious homemade vegetable stock as the base. So it’s a vegetarian starter.
And I wanted to make a soup which doesn’t feel too overwhelmed. And which gives you a full stomach. We still got some additional courses on our Christmas menu.
- Make sure your cream is cold before beating. Cold cream can be whipped more easily.
- Broccoli is a soft vegetable, so you don't have to sieve the soup.
- Grate some fresh nutmeg on top of the soup for a beautiful accent.
