My favorite vegetable is broccoli. Roasted, steamed or soup. So it stands to reason that I love broccoli potato soup. It’s the perfect cold-weather food.
Currently stuck inside due to both weather and other reasons, soup seems like the best meal to cozy up to on the couch while binge watching more tv than a person reasonably needs to watch. Sadly, it’s been that way for most of the winter. And the summer. Sigh. Can spring get here soon please?
I’ve actually been making tons of soups lately. Well, cooking in general. Aren’t we all?
One of my favorite soups is a simple baked potato soup. Requires no fancy ingredients, is comforting like a thick comfy blanket, and is still delicious the next day. I like to make soup in my Instant Pot
, but this one is easy enough to make on the stove.
This last time, I had some broccoli handy, so I roasted it (because I almost always roast broccoli before adding it to anything) and added it at the end.
The result was a more nutritious version of my favorite soup that was still perfect on a snowy winter night. I might be making broccoli potato soup often!
