If you love creamy soups, I promise you this recipe will become a new favourite. Caramelized leeks, fresh thyme, plenty of broccoli, Parmesan cheese, cooked in a broth perfectly balanced with cream. This most delicious thick and creamy soup is quick and easy, made with simple healthy ingredients. The caramelized leeks and Parmesan add so much flavour to a simple cream of broccoli soup. I always serve my creamy soups with either gluten-free chia soda bread or my famous gluten-free artisan bread. This packed with goodness soup is a meal on its own, but it makes a stunning starter to any meal, especially when the company is coming! Enjoy 🙂
