Today was a cold day in Hawkes Bay and thus I felt it called for a cream of broccoli soup… slow cooker style! After a fun filled day with my beautiful girls, what better way to nourish our bodies at the end of the day in preparation for a solid night’s sleep. And the smell of the vegetables with the herbs wafting through the house are what memories are made of!
1 onion, peeled and chopped roughly
2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
Handful of herbs from the garden, chopped (I used lemon thyme)
1 large head broccoli, chopped roughly
2 potatoes washed, chopped
2 cups vegetable stock
4 cups boiling water
Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and place on high until potatoes are cooked, yet firm. (This was about 4 hours in my George Foreman).
Purée in blender. (Or you can use a hand blender).
This recipe serves 4 adults with a side of crusty bread! Delicious!
