Recipe Notes

Feel free to manipulate this recipe to your liking. Change the broth type, use a head of roasted garlic, throw in the broccoli crowns if you want.

The point of a recipe like this is not to create stress, but to show you that you can make something delicious from a less loved part of food.

Use what you have on hand. If you have less potatoes that is fine! All you really need to do is make sure the liquid covers the top of the vegetables before blending. You can add more broth if you prefer a more liquid soup.
