Broccoli Bisque RECIPE

Hub-UK first came into existence back in May 2000. Seems a long time ago now!

Back then the internet was a very different place with much more of an amateur feel to it. In a lot of ways it was a pleasanter and more friendly place to hang out. For those of us interested in food and cooking it was a great opportunity to chat and share ideas with people living in other parts of the world.

It was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share recipes so others could enjoy them.

A lot of the details of who contributed what have either become blurred or disappeared over the years but the recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right or for the inspiration they might give.


6 cups chopped broccoli
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 large garlic clove, minced
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 cup skimmed milk
Small broccoli florets to garnish (optional)

  • In a large saucepan, combine chopped broccoli, broth, onion, lemon juice, garlic, pepper and l cup water.
  • Bring to the boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium.
  • Cook, covered, for 12 - 15 minutes until broccoli is tender, adding more water (1 tablespoon at a time) if liquid begins to evaporate.
