Are you ready to talk about some soup? This Cream of Brussels Sprout Soup recipe is so easy! You put everything in a pot, let is cook, then blend it all together and add a little cream. That’s it!
My family calls this Brussel Sprout Soup, although technically they’re Brussels sprouts with that “s” on the end and capital B. I call it Cream of Brussels Sprout Soup, they call it Brussel Sprout Soup, but either way, it’s easy and delicious.
I love how you basically put all the ingredients (except the cream) into one pot all at the same time!
To start, place the fresh Brussels sprouts in the pot. I trimmed off the ends and cut each sprout in half so they wouldn’t take so long to cook.
Then add the chopped celery, carrot, onion, garlic, dried thyme, and salt and pepper to the pot. You may need to adjust the seasoning to your family’s personal preference. I also added a little Dijon mustard but if you’re not a mustard fan you can leave it out.
Next, pour the broth on top of the other ingredients. I used chicken broth but you could use vegetable broth for a vegetarian soup.
I also added a little apple cider that we had in the house but you could omit or could also add a little more if you like apple. Fresh chopped apple would also be great in the soup!
Bring it all to a boil, then simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
When the vegetables are soft and cooked through, use an immersion blender to blend the soup. I left mine a little on the chunkier side but you can continue blending until it’s a lot smoother.
Then add the cream and cook a little longer. If you want a creamier or thicker soup you can use more cream.
I LOVE my immersion blender, but if you don’t have one and don’t want to get one, you can also use a blender (or even a food processor). Be sure the soup is either cold when you add it to the blender or leave part of the top off of the blender to let the steam escape if the soup is hot, otherwise, it may explode, and you don’t want that.
Here’s a quick video so you can see how easy this creamy Brussels sprout soup is to put together…
