Crema di Broccoli é Patate
This delicious soup comes to us from Chef Matteo Ferrari of Stella Alpina Osteria
in Burlingame, California. It's rich and flavorful, really shows off the flavor of the Meyer Lemon oil, and is a cinch to make.
1 lb broccoli, separated into stalks
4 medium-sized russett potatoes, cubed
2 leeks, washed and chopped
8 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 cup olive oil (DaVero 30 Weight is a good choice)
DaVero Meyer Lemon olive oil
salt & pepper
In a stock pot, combine the extra virgin oil, broccoli, potatoes, and leeks. Sauté for about 10 minutes to cook through, then add the stock and let simmer for about 25 minutes.
Blend until you reach a nice silky texture. Add salt to taste.
Place into warm bowls, garnish with a little chopped Italian parsley, and drizzle with Meyer Lemon oil and a grind of fresh-cracked pepper just before serving.
