creamy broccoli soup

1 tbsp olive oil
1 med onion, chopped
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
2 cups turkey broth (It's what I had in the freezer! You could make this vegetarian with veggie broth instead.)
7 cups chopped broccoli
1 large potato, cut into 1/2" pieces
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and red pepper and cook until soft. Add broth, broccoli, potato, 2 cups water, salt and pepper and simmer, covered until veggies are very tender. Using immersion blender puree until smooth.

We served with homemade soda bread and cheddar cheese - and had left overs for lunch on Saturday :)

No picture of the soup... but here are my garden helpers

Happy Monday!
