Ready for some green goodness delicious soup??
I made a big batch last night so that I could have a big container in the fridge for the next few days.
What you will need;
4-5 cups of chicken broth (preferably home made)
1 big bunch fresh broccoli
1 pack (1 cup) of frozen spinach
1/3 cup fresh onion (or leek)
1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or Parmesan (I used KerryGold Dubliner)
2 tbl spoons peanut butter (or almond butter) or Tahini.
2 t spoons butter
Salt & pepper to taste
Here we go;
In the butter cook your sliced onion until soft. I used some green onion and red onion for a combination of onion flavor.
Once soft, add in your chicken broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add your broccoli and cover.
When the broccoli gets soft, remove your pan from the burner and add in your pack of spinach. Stir and combine.
Next add your cheese and peanut butter ( or tahini).
Again combine and mix well. Now working in small batches, puree your soup in the blender or food processor. You can use your immersion blender also. Add salt and pepper to taste, reheat and serve.
I just didn’t have the attention span left to make a nice final “food” picture, as I was starving and wanted to dig in. If the soup is to thick for your taste, just add a bit of chicken broth while you are reheating. The amount of cheese is very small per serving, so if dairy is an issue for you, look at it more like a flavor enhancer. As to the peanut butter…I wanted to make this recipe simple for all and not everyone has tahini on the shelf. You can of course also use frozen broccoli or fresh spinach. I had fresh organic broccoli and frozen spinach so that’s what I used. Hit me up with as comment if you make this, because I think you will be very impressed with yourself (as will your other eaters at home) as to the delicious soup you just made.
“If you don’t change, reality in the end forces that change upon you.” SW
When I was a 14 year old kid, my grandpa, who I spent a lot of time with, told me about this all the time. He would say (and I paraphrase), “we all know what the RIGHT thing to do really is…it’s part of who we are after all…do the right thing for yourself FIRST…from there it will flow into the world and help us all. IF you DON’T do the right thing for yourself…in the end, TIME will do it for you…and that’s when life gets real unpleasant. Don’t make “life” fix YOUR life, do it yourself, do the right thing and you will be rewarded with a very enjoyable life.
Anywho, thought I’d share that piece of grandpa wisdom 🙂
Be cheerful today and let people feel it from you.
