Comforting Fall Market Soup

Comforting Fall Market Soup

This simple potato and broccoli soup is a fall classic for a reason. By blending half of the soup and leaving the other half chunky, you get a creamy texture that still has some bits of vegetable to bite in to.

  • Peel and dice 3 gold or red potatoes. Chop ¾ lb. broccoli into bit sized pieces. Dice 2 garlic gloves and 1 yellow onion.

Blend until smooth and return to the pot with remaining 2 cups of vegetable stock or water. Bring soup to a simmer and cook until potatoes and broccoli are cooked to your liking.
