Broccoli Cheese Soup
There are two kinds of people in this world; people who love Broccoli Cheese Soup, and liars.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 tsp salt
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 cups water
2 heads broccoli, chopped
1/2 tsp ground pepper
4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp tahini
1. In a soup pot over medium heat, add olive oil and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, about 5 minutes. Add carrots and salt. Cook another 5 minutes. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds.
2. Add the broth, water, broccoli and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer, covered, 20 minutes.
3. Using an immersion blender, blend until your desired consistency is desired. For a truly smooth soup, puree in a blender in batches.
4. Stir in the cheese and tahini. Blend until just combined. Taste for seasoning and enjoy with crusty bread!
