broccoli & potato soup

Nov 1, 2009

It is high time we have another recipe on here, don’t you think? Well, today, I thought I would share one of favorites in terms of tastiness AND prep-time. I am all about not spending a lot of time in the kitchen, but I also like my food to taste good, so this recipe is perfect for me.

This is another recipe from Diane Hopkin’s book Hopkins’ Healthy Home Cooking. Have I already said “you need to buy this book!” Let me say it again…buy it. Go to Latter-Day Family Resources and put it in your cart today. It is chock full of yummy, simple, and healthy recipes!

Broccoli and Potato Soup

Red Potatoes

Scrub unpeeled potatoes, cut in half, and put in a large pot. Wash and trim broccoli and put on top of the potatoes. You should have a little more broccoli than potatoes. Add water to 1″ above the vegetables and simmer until they are tender. Puree in the blender with enough of the cooking water to make a thick soup consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

If you are like me and enjoy cheese, then put it back into the pan and add some cheese in a little at a time while stirring to help it melt smoothly.

It is perfect for fall and winter nights and would be yummy with whole wheat sourdough garlic bread.

    I’d also love a can of black beans in this! A little protein, a little color and lots of fiber. :D

  2. Yummo! That sounds wonderful! I am going to try this tomorrow……..although it would be nice if we had some cool weather to go with it. :( Only 25 more days left in Texas…….goodbye 100 degree days and hello snow! :)
