Broccoli and Potato Soup

Broccoli and potatoes all pureed up into a nice creamy soup. The potatoes are what makes it velvety smooth, the broccoli and cheese make it taste like a loaded baked potato. Now who doesn't like a loaded baked potato! Top this off with a little crumbled Prosciutto or bacon and enjoy!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 16oz bag of frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 1/2 pounds boiling potatoes (about 5), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3 cups canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
  • 3 cups reduced fat milk
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese grated
  • cooked crumbled prosciutto or bacon for garnish, optional

  Preparation Instructions:

  • In a large pot, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, broccoli , potatoes, broth, milk, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are almost tender, about 20-25 minutes.
  • In a food processor or blender, pulse the soup to a  puree. Return the soup to the pot and bring to a simmer. Stir 1/4 cup of the grated Parmesan and 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese into the soup, and serve the soup topped with crumbled prosciutto.
