Three-Ingredient Broccoli-Potato Soup

3 ingredient broccoli potato soup

Well, well, well, Weather.  One day you are 100 degrees and the next you are 70.  What happened to a gradual change in seasons?!  Why did you have to take us all by such surprise?  WE’RE COLD!!

So it turns out fall is here.  It came very suddenly, and I still haven’t adjusted to the fact that from here on out I will be cold in my summer dresses. So unfortunate!

I don’t like cold, but I do like autumn. Autumn is pumpkins and spiders and hot chocolate and being cozy.  Autumn kicks off the holiday season: Harvest Wine Weekend, my birthday (I’ll be 22 in 22 days…oh my goodness!), and Halloween….and these are all very exciting things!

found this big guy today...tarantula season is actually in August, but they remind me of Halloween!

Soup season also officially begins when it gets cold!  Although I eat hot soup all year round, it’s officially acceptable when the cold weather rolls in.  This Broccoli Potato soup is the easiest soup I have encountered – THREE ingredients!  TEN minutes (maybe less!).  It’s divine – silky and flavorful.  Here we go:

Three-Ingredient Broccoli-Potato Soup
serves 2

1 Russet potato, peeled
1 cup broccoli stems and florets
chicken broth or water to cover
salt and pepper

Roughly chop potato into chunks. Place in pot and cover with broth or water.  Bring to a boil.  When you can easily stick a fork in the potato, add the broccoli and cook until tender – you might have to add a bit more broth to cover, but don’t go overboard.  At this point, I like to puree my soup with an immersion blender, but it is also good peasant-style (chunky!).  Salt and pepper to taste and you’ve got a hearty meal!

  1. Dear Laura: I’m drafting a food resource guide to be used in food pantry’s in California. I need to use a broccoli soup image in it and really like yours. It popped up in Google. Do I have your permission to use it? The guides will be from the California Dept of Public Health and not sold. I’m a consultant to the project but don’t have a budget for images. If it’s okay with you please let me know how you want the credit for it to be listed. Thanks, Marilyn Prehm
