Broccoli and Pistachio Soup

broccolipistachiosoup1 copy

easy. peasy. feel free to add some lemon squeezy.

bring a saucepan to a medium heat with a bit of olive oil. add some
broccoli florets and cook until nice and bright green, but not cooked
through. add some chopped garlic and small fistful of pistachios. pour
over top with some simmering chicken stock and cook for a few more
minutes (just until the broccoli is tender). purée the hell out of it and
pass it through a fine chinois. taste for salt and pepper and add a small
splash of rice wine vinegar. garnish with one floret of broccoli, a few 
pistachios, a touch of ricotta or mascarpone, and a drop or two of olive oil.

you just have to blend / food process the hell out of it. i mean, really give it a good spin. then pass it through a fine chinois. a bit of extra work, but the results are silky smooth.

I made it again with few changes to the recipe. Added Avocado for more creaminess. And oh boy! Love it. Thank you for the recipe.

Oh my damn this was delish! Stumbled upon your blog via a Paleo pin on Pinterest. Love the photos and your up-for-creative-interpretation directions. From a fellow Marylander, thanks and will be back. Wish you posted more! :)

I just made it and it was DELISH ... I do have a few questions though ... I used a vitamix, so I had no problem pureeing the hell out of it ... how much chicken broth did you use? from the recipe, it says pour over the top ... i'm not sure i used enough, the consistency was like baby food, so i couldn't run it through a chinois ... should i add a lot of broth? thanks for any feedback ... and yes, the photography is even exquisite!

I loved this. I added celery and had walnuts instead of pistachios, it was fantastic!
