INGREDIENTS

  • 1 - 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 32 oz homemade chicken broth
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and diced
  • 5 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed into small pieces
  • 2 small heads broccoli, washed and diced small
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • organic cheese, shredded (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large pot heat oil over medium high heat. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add minced garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add chicken broth, carrots and potatoes. Bring to a boil and cover. Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, or until potatoes are soft.
  • Using a hand held stick mixer, puree the vegetables until almost all of them are pureed. (It's okay to leave some vegetable chunks for texture)
  • Add broccoli, cover and cook over medium low heat for an additional 10 minutes.
  • While simmering, melt butter in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in the arrowroot starch, almond milk and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 - 5 minutes, or until sauce has thickened. Remove from stove top and add sauce to the soup. Stir until well combined.
  • Season soup with salt, freshly ground black pepper and oregano.
  • Add more milk for a thinner consistency and add any additional salt and pepper if needed.
  • Serve warm, and top with bacon pieces and cheese if desired.
