steam broccoli
saute onions and garlic
add beans, broccoli and chicken stock
puree with hand blender
add parmesan
This creamy broccoli soup is easy to make and so healthy with 2 super foods, broccoli and beans as featured ingredients.  I use a sheep’s milk parmesan because I tolerate it better than cow’s milk dairy products, but any parmesan is fine.  You can also make it without the cheese and it is still very tasty.
Serves 4
12 oz. Broccoli florets, lightly steamed
2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 15-oz. Can cannellini beans, drained
2 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/4 c. Freshly grated Parmesan
Heat olive oil in medium pot over medium heat.  Sauté onion for 3 minutes.  Add garlic and continue to cook for 3 more minutes.  Add beans and stock and bring to a simmer.  Add broccoli and remove from heat.  Purée soup with a hand blender or purée in batches in a regular blender until smooth.  Season to taste with salt and white pepper.  Blend in parmesan and serve.
