It’s become kind of a mainstay, cream of broccoli soup. My recipe is one of hundreds you'll find, but I'm still partial to it. If you follow the numbers below it makes enough to serve three. Double them if you need to serve six.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

1/2 bunch of broccoli
3 cups of chicken broth
3-5 heaping tablespoons of yogurt
salt to taste
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
a handful of fried noodles

Remove the tough portions of the broccoli stems. Cut the heads into small pieces and cook these in the chicken broth until they're tender. Then puree them with the broth and yogurt. Now, pour this mixture into a saucepan and heat it just to the boiling point. Salt the soup to taste.  As you ladle it into bowls, add the nutmeg and fried noodles to each serving. Be thrifty when portioning it out.
