Cream of Broccoli Soup

The Chef: Liz

The Menu: A rich, delicious, blended cream of broccoli soup that featured potatoes, cashews, garlic, onions, carrots, and, of course, broccoli, which Liz topped with toasted breadcrumbs. A spinach salad with grated carrots and halved cherry tomatoes, toasted baguette slices, and a helping of brown basmati rice made mighty good sides to our mouthwatering main.

The Goods: As you might have read recently, the VNHQ is now home to a shiny, new Vita-Mix. We pretty much spend every spare second here talking about what foods we want to blend up, and the ideas so far have spanned from the ridiculous (burrito soup, anyone?) to the ridiculously delicious, like today's lunch. Yes, you can pretty much expect every meal this week to have some sort of soup, smoothie, or other blended item. Feel free to tell us your favorite recipes!

It would be nice if you posted recipes. I read a lot of food blogs and the reason I keep reading them is the recipes. You take pictures of great looking dishes, why not give readers a reason to stick around by sharing something with them?

Hi Anon and mountain.girl75,

Thanks for your comments! We don't typically post recipes here since we don't typically use them when making lunch! By describing the food we eat, we hope to inspire similar dishes, though it would probably be almost impossible to exactly replicate them since we just use what's on hand on any given day. Of course, if we do happen to use a recipe, we'll tell you where to find it!
