I’m not sure if it is just stress, mild sleep deprivation, or both but I feel like I am coming down with something, again. This isn’t really that outlandish given that I work in close range with many different people on a daily basis. A patient actually sneezed on me today (eww) but I digress…
My plan was to make a nutrient rich, hearty soup to help nip any creepy germs attempting to wreak havoc on my immune system in the bud.
1 box organic low sodium chicken broth (or veggie broth for a vegetarian version)
1 bag of broccoli cuts
I medium onion
2 garlic cloves
1 cup shredded cheese (I used 2% reduced fat sharp cheddar and parm)
salt, pepper, herbs
Saute chopped onion and garlic in a little EVOO, add box of broth and bring to a boil. Add broccoli until cooked. Scoop out broccoli and onion with strainer and puree in a blender until smooth. Add this mixture back to broth. Melt in cheese.
Serve with a chunk of sourdough baguette! Yum!
Tomorrow is Friday! Woohoo!
