Tonights dinner is once again green.

Okay I decided to make my own broccoli soup using my new Blendtec blender.  You can find the recipe in my recipe page.  I blundered this a bit and corrected it in my recipe.

I used 3 broccoli crowns, 1/4 of a Valida onion, a shallot, a clove of elephant garlic, 2 big hand fulls of baby spinach, 1 cup of chicken broth, 1/2 cup of heavy cream and salt and pepper.  I WAY OVER DID IT WITH THE GARLIC!  No vampires in my house for the next month!  There is so much garlic my mouth tingles like when you eat raw ginger or chili powder.  Just so you know, I cut the garlic to 2-3 regular garlic cloves but you can use even less than that.  Good thing I love garlic.  I blended my soup on the ‘soup’ setting and it really came out smooth, you can just pulse this to make it chunkier I think.  I love the taste and the fact that there is no crap in it.  I hope some one tries this and lets me know how they like it.

Happy Eating!

UPDATE:  I didn’t know garlic can make your mouth burn like hot sauce, I literally can feel the garlic coming out of my pores!  My husband will not come near me tonight…
