Broccoli cream soup

I love cooking on a rainy day. Usually when it rains I don’t feel like going out and then the inspiration hits. I browse for recipes, checking which ingredients are already in the fridge. Always take a piece of paper and scribble down all the ides that come to mind and it’s always hard to choose just one, so I pick one but schedule other recipes for another day. Well at the moment the list has hundreds of recipes and I try to cook them all but always find new ones that grab my attention. Honestly I hope the list never comes to an end, I crave that inspiration and the ideas that sometimes overflow me, love finding new recipes and even more cooking them.

Nothing is better than a warm bowl of soup on a cold rainy day. I have tried so many different soups, from clear chicken noodle soup my mother makes to cream tomato soup my grandmother used to make. I know many people who don’t like broccoli, as a kid I didn’t either, but growing up and finding new ways to prepare broccoli surprised me how delicious it can be once served.

This broccoli cream soup is delicious and spicy, just for a cold rainy November day. Enjoy!
