Potato Broccoli Soup

Oh, Mother Nature, you are such a tease! Earlier this week, we were ready to bust out shorts and flip flops. Today, we are buried under a mountain of snow. All schooling and community activities have been cancelled today, and we are cooped up indoors. Blah! Usually when we are stuck indoors, I like to test out new recipes. Since it's cold today, soup sounds like a fun and warming recipe to try. We love potato soup, and we love broccoli soup, but we have never combined the two veggies into one soup dish. So, this Potato Broccoli Soup from Golden Blossom Honey looked like it was going to hit the spot today!

Potato Broccoli Soup

With just a few ingredients, this soup can be whipped up in no time! It's a light, healthy soup, but I also think it would be fantastic turned into a cream based soup as well, if you don't mind the extra added calories. Served up with some toasted French bread, it's the perfect lunch or light dinner recipe. 

Ingredients
2 pounds potatoes, washed and cut into 1 inch chunks
3 cloves garlic, minced
7 cups water
1 pound broccoli
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 loaf French bread cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

  1. Broccoli is great, it has more calcium than milk does.

    When I'm stuck indoors I like to make Chicken Enchiladas.

    1. Chicken Enchiladas are so yummy! I haven't had them in a while, but I think I need to pick up some tortillas this weekend and fix that!

  2. da only thing missing in that soup - some diced celery leaves :)

    I will never stop wondering how your schools close with the very first snowflake :) In my country we kick kids out onto the snow like huskies. And ain't nobody even has cars, they all go to school on foot. It used to take me an hour to get there and an hour to come back, rain, snow or shine :) Which is why me has Goblin feet now. I'd wake up at 5.30AM to get to school at 7.15 :)

    1. We get lake effect snow in our area and it is super heavy and icy. It's not safe to drive on or walk through. The schools close because the buses can't make it through the slush. Allison threw a fit because I wouldn't let her walk down the road to a friends house because I was worried about her getting run over by a car sliding through the ice. When I went out yesterday, I noticed some cars took out a few mailboxes and stop signs in our neighborhood, so she can't give me the "nobody will run me over" speech she kept trying to feed me yesterday. I just point at the damage and she shuts right up lol

    2. can't she shovel her way through the snow and husky up the sleighs with your dogs? :)
      We don't even have school buses here, we're expected to walk to school :( and ain't nobody cleans the streets on top of that.

    1. Oh, they sure do! But when summer rolls around, they also like to grumble when they have to make those snow days up in the warm weather.
