” Cream of broccoli and potato, with parmesan and fontina “
Soup can be so many things.
– Boring. Unimportant. Uninspired :-(
– Good. Great. Warming. Satisfying. Amazing. Unforgettable. Pretty. Flavorful. Addictive. A Treat. Not to be missed :-)
“Bella” means beautiful in Italian, therefore: Bella the soup. Bella the dog :-)
Bon Appetit ! Life is Good !
Broccoli, cut into small florettes, blanched
Broccoli stock, reserved from blanching the broccoli
Potato, small chopped
Parmesan, finely grated
Fontina, coarsly grated
Butter, to saute
Saute onion and garlic in butter until fragrant. Add potatoes, stock and seasoning. Simmer until potatoes are soft. Add broccoli, reserve some for garnish. Bring back to simmer. Remove from heat, add cream and parmesan. With a stick blender, blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if neccessary. To serve, add a few broccoli florettes, sprinkle with fontina and chili flakes. Share with a loved one. (Bella adores this soup, I guess because of the cheese) :-)
