Ok so I made this with Kale and it flat out ROCKS!!!

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?420

but my question is.. I want to try it with Broccoli but I don't want to overcook the broccoli before blending and get that awful overcooked broccoli flavor.  I've had to throw out an entire batch of broccoli soup because of this.  

so when should i add the broccoli to the pot ?  i.e. how long to cook the broccoli before transferring the batch to the blender?

thanks for any advice on this!

I've never tried broccoli in a soup,  but I think I would cook the stocks in the soup before blending and add the florets  just long enough to warm and add color.

Broccoli cooks in 5 to 10 minutes, depending on whether fresh or frozen...

If you want it "just done", then it should be put in with about that much cooking time remaining.  Since you are blending the finished product to make a fine soup, any pieces that weren't quite done before blending will be very fine and finish cooking very quickly once pureed.

I agree!!!!  

Our local farmers market only sells Kale in individual pieces rather than as a whole so I was a bit lost as to what half would have been.  The smell of the kale was a bit overpowering so I may have put a bit too much in but in saying that the taste of the kale with the sweet potato and chicken stock ( I put in a litre as I think I put in too much of the other ingredients) was absolutely DELICIOUS!
