Preparation and Cooking Time
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
½ cup frozen peas
2 cups salt-reduced chicken broth
1 medium red potato, chopped
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup thickened cream
1 garlic clove, crushed
1¼ broccoli head cut into florets stems chopped
1 medium brown onion, chopped
In a saucepan, heat oil over medium. Add in onion and cook until softened, for about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until aromatic.
Add broccoli stems, red potato, and broth, then bring to a boil. Cook for at least 20 minutes, stirring from time to time or until the potato and broccoli are soft.
Add the peas and broccoli florets to the saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook until the veggies are soft and bright green, for about 5 minutes. Then remove from the heat.
Blend gently with an immersion blender until smooth, then add the cream and continue to blend until well combined.
Serve in bowls and garnish with broccoli florets. Enjoy!
1. You can serve with additional thickened cream if desired.
