Everything will go into a blender so do not worry about the shapes.
½ onion roughly chopped
1 cup white potato roughly chopped
3 cups cooked(left over) or raw broccoli
4 cups vegetable stock (see archive post for recipe)
1 tsp. sea salt
pepper is optional
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp fresh Basil Leaves (optional)
Heat a pot with the olive oil, add the onions and cook on a low flame for about 10 minutes until onions are soft and sweet. Do not brown them. Add the broccoli, potato and stock. Season with Salt and Pepper. Bring to a boil, cover pot and turn down to simmer until the the potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes.
Strain the soup and save the liquid. Put the broccoli and potato mixture into a blender. Pour half of the reserved liquid. Puree. Pour back into your pot. Add the additional liquid, stir. To serve, ladle into bowls and sprinkle a little basil on each one. It really freshens up the soup.
