Reclaim Your Health! Reclaim Your Life

There’s nothing like ending a cold day with a bowl of creamy chowder!  Pair it with some whole grain toast and your taste buds and tummy will both be happy!

On top of that, my 17 year old daughter likes it so, in my book, that’s a recommendation worth listening to!

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • 4 cups unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk, plus more for drizzling
  • 4 cups chopped fresh (or frozen) broccoli
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped peeled potatoes
  • 1 15-oz. can no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill weed, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked (or sweet) paprika
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large pot cook onion, celery, and the remaining garlic over medium 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding water, 1 to 2 Tbsp. at a time, as needed to prevent sticking. Add milk, 2 cups of the broccoli, the potatoes, beans, dill, and paprika. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are very tender.
  2. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until it is mostly smooth. Add remaining broccoli and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Season with salt and pepper.
