Time was of the essence. When it comes to this time of the year (approaching summer), perishables get a beating. Had some of nature’s wholesome foods (kale/broccoli) on hand. From the looks of a portion of same, they were heading downhill.
Decided to transform them into a creamy and smooth dish in the form of broccoli and kale soup. Did someone say ‘FIBER!!’ Added a few other ingredients like:
- diced onions
- veggie bouillon
- olive oil
- salt and black pepper
- sharp cheddar
In a stock pot, diced onions and crushed garlic were sautéed in olive oil. Then kale and broccoli were added to the mix; making sure to season along with salt and black pepper. Water was added along with vegetable bouillon. This simmered until tender.
After cooling, this was added to standing blender for pureeing.
This was poured into stock pot under low heat. Warm milk and sharp cheese were then added. This brought it further to a creamy consistency. Served same with garnish of broccoli and a dollop of sour cream.
