Broccoli and Potato Soup With Red Pepper Cream

Ingredients

  1. 1 broccoli crown
  2. 2 small potatoes
  3. 2 stalks kale
  4. 1/4 red onion
  5. 2 cloves garlic
  6. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  7. 5 1/2 cups water
  8. 1 bouillon cube
  9. 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  10. 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  11. 1 red bell pepper
  12. 1/4 cup 2 percent cottage cheese
  13. 1 tablespoon milk of choice
  14. Salt/pepper to taste

Directions

For the soup, start off by roughly chopping the veggies. Prepare a large pot on the stove and heat the oil on medium-low heat and throw in the chopped onion. The onion should become translucent and should give off a strong aroma. Then add the garlic and kale. When the kale has slightly wilted, add the potatoes. Then add the broccoli and water. Cover the pot and when the water comes to a boil, add the bouillon cube. Once it has dissolved, stir, then cover again. Cook for about 30 minutes. At this point, the veggies (particularly the broccoli) should be soft.

Take the pot off the stove and let cool. Add the seasonings, and then using an immersion blender, blend the entire mixture until smooth and creamy. Alternatively, you can pour it into a regular blender. Add more salt if necessary, and the soup is complete!

For the red pepper cream, blend the cottage cheese, chopped red bell pepper, and milk together. Add salt if necessary. Drizzle the cream atop the soup and enjoy served with cooked quinoa!
