Very Quick Green Garlic Soup
Prep and cook time: 20 minutes Serves 4-6 people
- 1 pound’ green peas, green beans, or broccoli
- 8-12 cloves of garlic
- 1 pound red potatoes (peeled and boiled until tender)
- 6 cups chicken or vegetable broth (seasoned to your liking with salt and pepper)
Put green vegetables in a blender or food processor with garlic. Blend/puree. Add potatoes and blend/puree. Working in batches, add broth and blend/puree at high speed. Pour blended/pureed ingredients into a large pot, warm, and serve. This soup reheats well.
For a creamier version, add 1/2 cup of warmed half and half.
To intensify green color, blend/puree in a handful of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley.
