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.
