Total Time:
55 mins


  • 5 cups chopped broccoli florets and stalks

  • 1 onion, chopped into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • ¾ teaspoon lemon pepper, or more as needed

  • crushed red pepper flakes to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place broccoli, onion, garlic, and olive oil in a large bowl and toss to coat evenly. Place on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

  3. Roast vegetables until soft, 30 to 35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Chop 1/4 cup of broccoli florets; set aside for garnish.

  4. Combine remaining vegetables with vegetable broth, cream cheese, and lemon pepper in a high-powered blender or food processor in batches. Puree soup until smooth.

  5. Pour soup into a saucepan over medium-low heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes. Season with additional lemon pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls. Garnish with reserved chopped broccoli and crushed red pepper.

Cook's Notes:

A 1 1/2 pound head of broccoli yields about 5 cups of chopped florets and stems.

Chop broccoli stalks no thicker than 1/4-inch to ensure the pieces cook in the allotted time.
