This bright green soup is tasty, healthy, pretty, and a snap to make. Garnish with croutons or whatever you like. Chris had his with tangy feta the first night. I like mine plain or with toast.
Broccoli and Pea Soup:
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large heads broccoli, chopped
5 cups vegetable broth
1 package frozen peas
Coarse salt & fresh ground black pepper
Saute the onion and a generous pinch of kosher salt in a bit of olive oil until translucent. Add the garlic and cook a minute or so. Add the broccoli and the vegetable broth, bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until the broccoli is just tender and bright green. Turn off the stove and remove from heat. Stir in the peas and allow to warm through. Puree in batches in the blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
