Kitchen Wisdom Gluten Free Creamy Broccoli Soup Roman Style is delicious and velvety. Gluten and Dairy free, this soup is a great example of how to make a rich and thick soup without the use of flour or cream. I boil potato with the broccoli and then use an emulsion blender to puree the vegetables. The result is a smooth, flavorful and satisfying spring soup. This soup traditionally uses only broccoli and garlic. Some of the whole broccoli is usually reserved and returned to the soup after the rest is pureed. Enjoy a heartier meal by serving this Creamy Broccoli Roman Style soup with slices of garlic infused toast.
