I was craving soup (crazy, I know, it was like 96 degrees here yesterday!) and had a ton of veggies on hand so this just kinda came together. I cooked some onion and garlic in a little butter.
Added some chopped carrots and yellow bell pepper.
Poured in chicken broth and broccoli,
let simmer for a while before throwing in a few handfuls of spinach.
I blended batches of the soup and added a couple of tablespoons of flax seeds.
I returned the blended soup to heat and added a tablespoon of heavy cream.
Then came the fun part, I put the soup in ramekins and covered with a slice of provolone cheese.
After a couple of minutes under the broiler, this was the result:
The soup was so good, we each had a second serving (skipped the cheese). For dessert we each had half of this adorable mini watermelon.
