Broccoli Soup

I'm trying to up my green game, I love broccoli in soup but the little trees on their own ... not so much .

This recipie is seriously delicious and super easy! It's vegetarian and packed full of vitamins, and the green stuff! 

Here is a list of what you will need :

- 2 small onions  (chopped)

- 2 cloves of garlic  (I'm to lazy to chop so I throw the cloves in whole, it's being blended anyways) 

- 1/4 cup of butter  

- salt and pepper  

- 2 - 3 medium carrots  (chopped)

- 5 heads of chopped broccoli  (8 cups)

- 6 cups of vegetable stock  

- Cheddar Cheese  

Steps   

1. Brown butter, onion, garlic, and a sprinkle of each ; salt and pepper.

 I usually have my own on hand but when I'm in a pinch this is my go to brand .

Step 5  

Once the broccoli is fully cooked  (basically falling apart when you stir) you can add small batches into you blender. Blend to your preferred consistency .

This recipie makes about 7 cups. It doesn't last 24 hours in this house but if you have left overs it will stay good in the fridge for 5 days or the freezer for 6 months. 

Try it and let me know what you think!

Thank you for reading :)
