When it comes to this soup, I have to say it’s a “Don’t judge me!” soup. And what I mean by that is don’t judge a book by its cover. 

Brussels sprouts soup may not be the most photogenic, but it is absolutely delicious!

The Brussels sprouts are caramelized with onion and (turkey) bacon before becoming a rich and creamy soup. I mean how can something that looks this amazing not have all the flavor to go with it?

I think you will be pleasantly surprised at just how flavorful this soup actually is.

You will absolutely love this!

As an added bonus, this soup is also quite quick to make. The longest part is simply prepping the Brussels sprouts themselves.

  • butter
  • red onion
  • chicken broth
  • heavy cream

To begin, prepare your Brussels sprouts by cutting off the stem and then cutting the sprout in half.

Cook the onion, turkey bacon, and butter together in a Dutch oven until the onion is just slightly translucent.

Add in the Brussels sprouts. Cook these over medium low heat until the Brussels sprouts are tender.

When the Brussels sprouts are cooked, scoop half of the mixture out into a dish. 

Add the broth, cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.

Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until it is fairly smooth.

Add the reserved Brussels sprouts mixture back to the pot, along with the parsley.

Let the soup simmer for just a minute.

Enjoy!
