Broccoli, Cannellini Bean & Cheddar Soup

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/broccoli_cannellini_bean_cheddar_soup.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2007

White beans pureed into this broccoli soup make it extra creamy so you don't need heaps of cheese to do the job. Serve with a crunchy whole-grain roll and a glass of winter ale.

6 servings, scant 1 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add broccoli, cover and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in beans, salt and pepper and cook until the beans are heated through, about 1 minute.
  2. Transfer half the mixture to a blender with half the cheese and puree. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with the remaining broccoli mixture and cheese. Serve warm.
