The first time I made this Cream of Potato and Broccoli Soup was for a potluck at work. We were supposed to bring comfort food. I thought soup would fit the bill, and I was right. I had a great opportunity to use my immersion blender that I received for Christmas, and it worked perfectly. The only thing was that I decided to puree all of the soup, and it looked like puke. A pile of green puke. My husband called it "Exorcism Soup." I was afraid to take it to work. Nobody would eat this, I was sure. But I brought it, and I stuck a sign on it so everyone would know what it was. It was scarfed down in no time, and nobody knew it was vegan. Well, maybe a few people who knew that I made it and know I am vegan. But OH MY GOD delicious! Warm, thick, tastier-than-hell, comforting soup for the soul.
I made it again this weekend because it was chilly outside and I know my soup days are numbered. Garrett, Grace and I oohed and aahed over bowls of it. We dipped focaccia bread in it. Garrett couldn't believe how yummy it was. I wish I had some more!
