  1. Prepare Veggies

    Prepare ingredients.

    • 5 heads, chopped Broccoli
    • 1, diced Yellow Onion
    • 5 Garlic Cloves
  2. Simmer Soup

    In a medium to large pot, sauté onions & garlic in oil over medium heat for a few minutes. Add broccoli followed by stock. Zest lemons into pot. Simmer for 10 minutes.

    • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 8 cups Vegetable Stock
    • 2 Lemons
  3. Purée

    Pour soup into a blender, add parsley and season with salt to taste. Blend 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Work in batches if necessary. Pour soup back into pot and let sit until ready to serve. Reheat if necessary. Tips on blending hot liquids: 1. Fill the blender jar only half full. Filling the jar more than halfway can cause too much steam to build up and can blow the lid off the blender. 2. Place the blender lid securely on the blender. Remove center piece (feeder cap) of blender lid. 3. Cover the blender lid with a clean folded kitchen towel. The hot steam needs an escape route, this happens through the feeder cap and then out the edges of the towel. 4. Hold the lid on securely and start blending on lowest speed. Gradually increase speed. Following these instructions can help prevent burns.

    • 1/2 bunch, stems removed Italian Parsley
    • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  4. Prepare Herbed Goat Cheese

    Prepare herbs. In a medium bowl, mix goat cheese, cream and herbs together until smooth.
