Broccoli Shots

I love broccoli, usually I will sauté it with some bread crumbs and butter, the same way i like my cauliflower prepared.  Many times I just add some broccoli to my stir fry but I don’t really like steamed broccoli by itself, it pretty boring.

I was trying this broccoli soup and when I tasted this cold, I thought it was delicious.  This soup in my opinion is better cold than hot.  And on top of that it makes a great and refreshing appetizer.   Adding some cool refreshing and healthy shots to your party food table is always fun.  While people are eating some chicken wings, having some roquamole dip, this is a great addition to your table for something different.

You can server this soup hot or cold, I prefer it cold, it is more refreshing.

Any other soups that you like to serve in shot glasse?

Broccoli Shots

Yields: About 12 shot glasses | Prep: 20 minutes

7 oz broccoli chopped (about medium sized broccoli)
1 leek chopped
2 tbsp butter
½ vegetable stock
½ cup cream
1 cup milk
½ tsp white pepper
½ tsp salt

In a pot sauté the leek and broccoli with the butter till everything softens, about 5 minutes.  Add the vegetable stock, cream, milk, salt and pepper.  Cook for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli is soft.

Using a mixer make the soup smooth.  Add salt or pepper to taste.

Serve hot or cold in shot glasses.

Great Party Food:

Chicken Wings
Quiche Tartlettes
White Bean Puree

    I’ve never thought to have broccoli soup cold before, what a nice alternative. The shot glass idea is great for a party.

    I love serving appetizer sized soup treats! My favorite is that French Pea and Champagne soup (Vischoise?) served with a homemade cheese stick. Yes, I can actually make it and it tastes so good!

    I am not so sure the Broccoli soup could win me over – but your bean spread certainly did! I am heading for leftovers now.

    Warm hugs to you

    That’s a cool idea! No pun intended. At our wedding we had shots of tomato soup served with mini grilled cheese sandwiches. So cute!
