January 2020: Potato Broccoli Soup

Potato Broccoli Soup
Bright green broccoli florets float beautifully in this hearty soup, but it's broccoli stems that do the real work. They're cooked with the potatoes and then pureed to form a creamy base. A final touch of Parmesan gives the soup an Italian feel.     Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 3/4 pounds broccoli, thick stems peeled and diced (about 2 cups), tops cut into small florets (about 1 quart)
  • 1 1/2 pounds boiling potatoes (about 5), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 32oz low-sodium chicken bone broth or homemade stock
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper 1/2 cup grated Parmesan (optional)
How to Make It: Step 1: In a large pot, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Step 2: Add the garlic, broccoli stems, potatoes, broth, water, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are almost tender, about 10 minutes. Step 3: In a food processor or blender, pulse the soup to a coarse puree. Return the soup to the pot and bring to a simmer. Add the broccoli florets and simmer until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir 1/4 cup of the grated Parmesan into the soup, and serve the soup topped with the remaining cheese.    Recipe and photo from Food & Wine.
