Fresh Broccoli, Cauliflower and Kale Soup (all from our garden!)

Fresh Broccoli, Cauliflower and Kale Soup (Serves 4)

 Ingredients
1 cup onion, chopped
2 teaspoon olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 cups broccoli, chopped
2 cups cauliflower, chopped
2 cups kale, chopped
4 cups chicken broth, low-sodium
2 cups cheese, grated 2%
1 pound ham, low-sodium ( I use Boarshead ham)
1/2 cup Mootopia, 2%
Fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Sauté onion in soup pot with 2 tsp olive oil, until lightly browned. Add garlic and thyme, cook for one minute.
  2. Add fresh broccoli, cauliflower, kale and chicken broth to pot. Cook on medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Mash with potato masher until vegetables are broken up into a potato-like consistency. (Kale will not mash up as much as the broccoli and cauliflower.)
  3. Melt into mixture, grated cheese. Once cheese is melted, stir in ham and milk. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  4. Top with fresh ground black pepper and serve.

Note: For an alternative protein, add in tofu crumbles.
