Chaotic Cookery! - From Someone Else's Table: Broccoli Lemon Soup
This recipe was inspired by one I saw from Food 52. While I love a thick cheesy broccoli soup, this lighter version with the tang of lemon is really perfect. On this chilly day with our second snow in the past few days...while harboring hopes for spring...this fresh, but warming soup is just what the doctor ordered!
Broccoli Lemon Soup
1 clump broccoli - in my world stores usually package 2 - 3 stalks together
3 cloves garlic, minced 3 T olive oil s/p to taste
6 c chicken broth 1 c Parmesan, grated 1-2 lemons
Saute garlic in oil until tender and oil is flavored. Add broccoli, including stalks chopped up with tough bits removed. Toss broccoli around and simmer on low, covered, until broccoli is tender, about 10-15 minutes. Take out pretty florets when they are just bite tender and set aside. Add stock and simmer about 15 minutes. Let cool. Puree. Add lemon juice and parm. Bring back to simmer and toss in reserved florets. Serve with crusty bread and a salad for a great veggie meal.
So good!! Enjoy your dinner From Someone Else's Table! - c
