Broccoli Bacon Soup
Here is another recipe from the grand re-opening.
I love blended vegetable soups because of the smooth texture. I use a hand blender, but you can use a food processor or high end blender. Enjoy!
To make the soup you will need:
2 tablespoons palm oil, coconut oil, butter or ghee
2 cloves minced garlic
1 yellow onion chopped
2-3 stalks of broccoli cut into small florets
1 32 oz of chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
5-7 strips of bacon chopped
Here’s how it’s done. Heat the oil in a large soup pot and add garlic and onion. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes then add the broccoli to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes. Next, cover broccoli with chicken broth and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. If you pan fry bacon, do that now otherwise do it in the oven before you even start. After the pot comes to a boil, let the soup simmer on medium to high heat for 5 minutes. Then add the bacon and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes. When it is done, blend with a hand blender. If you don’t have a hand blender, let it cool for a bit than blend it in small portions. When serving you can serve with crumbled bacon on top.
