Foodie Friday Red Potato Broccoli Soup
Red Potato Broccoli Soup
Adapted from Rookie Cookie
1 head broccoli, washed and cut into bite-size florets
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp butter
Lawry's seasoned pepper to taste
1 med. onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp dill
dash of rosemary
6-8 red potatoes, washed and cubed
2 cans chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
1/2 a 24 oz tub of sour cream
4 oz of cream cheese, melted
Steam the broccoli separately until tender, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
In a large pot, coat the bottom with the olive oil. Add butter and wait until melted. Add onion and pepper. Stir well and saute until lightly browned. Add garlic, thyme, dill, and rosemary and saute for one minute more. Add the potatoes and chicken broth. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil for 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
Stir in steamed broccoli, milk, sour cream and cream cheese. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed.
If wanted serve with shredded cheddar cheese on top of each serving.
Yields 6 servings.
