Tried to make broccoli soup with some woody old broccoli. It's rather bitter. What would you add?

So far it has
Garlic
Ginger
Lots of spices
The broccoli
Stock

It has been simmering for 30 - 40 minutes.

It's quite tasty but a bit bitter. I've not blitzed it in the food processor.

Cream?
Coconut milk?
Tomato?

What would you add?

splash of cream probably

and have you got any cheese?

OR some cauliflower, that would mellow it down a bit

def not cheese given the ginger and spices, yuck. A potato would help (better for the texture than just broc too). A courgette or two?

Hummm. I added a tin of coconut milk. It helped. The broccoli was just bitter, I think. Poo. Am reluctant to throw more ingredients at it if it's going to end up yucky soup whatever I do.

Potato not a bad thought.
