BROCCOLI AND SKIMMED COTTAGE CHEESE SOUP – PHASE 3Jess Arroyo
3 leeks (white part only) chopped
1 teaspoon thyme
4 cups broccoli florets
4 & 1/2 cups vegetable stock
1 pinch pepper
1 pinch salt (optional)
Finely chop the broccoli and wait half an hour.
Then place the leeks in a large saucepan and saute over medium heat for 10 minutes, with 1 to 2 teaspoons of water to keep the leeks from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Add the thyme and cook for another minute, then add the broccoli and the vegetable stock. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium.
Continue to cook the mixture, covered, until the broccoli is tender (about 10 minutes). Add the skimmed cottage cheese right at the end.
Puree the soup and then season with pepper and salt, if desired..
Makes 4 serving
