Although this soup contains no cream it appears as though it does.  It’s smooth, delicious and simple to make.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

2 heads broccoli
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons diced onion
2 beef cubes
1 teaspoon all purpose flour
12 oz can evaporated milk

Rough chop the broccoli heads in smaller portions for steaming, removing the stems.  Reserve 1 cup of small broccoli florets.  Place remaining broccoli in a medium sized pot with just a small amount of water.  Cover and steam over medium heat.  Once the broccoli is soft place in a blender along with beef cubes and blend.  It should resemble baby food.  In a medium sized pot melt 2 tablespoons butter and saute onion and reserved broccoli until soft.  Add the flour and stir.  Pour in broccoli mixture and stir in milk.  Simmer on medium-low heat until heated through and soup thickens.

This would be great with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of cheese and bacon.
