Wow, I finally made my first batch of homemade soup.  And it only took me 30 minutes.  Simply amazing.

Cream of Broccoli:

  • 1 chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 heads of broccoli
  • one medium potato, chopped
  • 3 cups of broth (chicken or veggie)
  • italian herbs blend
  • salt and pepper
  • 3/4 c. blend cream

Begin by sauteing the onion and garlic in a tablespoon of oil.  Cook until tender (8-10 mins).  Next add 3 cups of broth, broccoli, potatoes, salt and herbs (i used about a palmful).  Steam for 10 mins.  Once tender, puree with immersion blender.  Check flavour; salt and pepper if necessary.  Add 3/4 – 1 cup of cream.

Top with grated marble cheese.
