  • 1 head broccoli (with stem)
  • 1 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • 3 leeks, white & light green parts
  • 2 potatoes (white or yellow), peeled & cubed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup aged cheddar cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley

  1. Trim florets off broccoli head and set aside. Peel stem with a vegetable peeler to remove woody outer skin, then finely chop.

  3. Add broth and water and bring up to a boil. Add broccoli florets then simmer until all veggies are tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in cheese and parsley, then puree soup using an immersion blender or food process until smooth. Return to pot and stir in sour cream and season to taste with salt and pepper.
