Very Quick Green Garlic Soup

From Chester Aaron’s Garlic is Life: A Memoir
Contributed by Lissa Gibbs, Tucson CSA

Prep and cook time: 20 minutes
Serves 4-6 people

1 pound green peas, green beans, or broccoli
8-12 cloves of garlic
1 pound red potatoes (peeled and boiled until tender)
6 cups chicken or vegetable broth (seasoned to your liking with salt and pepper)

Put green vegetables in a blender or food processor with garlic. Blend/puree. Add potatoes and blend/puree. Working in batches, add broth and blend/puree at high speed. Pour blended/pureed ingredients into a large pot, warm, and serve. This soup reheats well. For a creamier version, add 1/2 cup of warmed half and half. To intensify green color, blend/puree in a handful of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley.
