Tonight I made "Creamy Broccoli Soup with Roasted Red Bell Pepper Creme" from the RFD cookbook. Yum Yum! It's a great (and easy!) recipe. I made a half recipe and that was more than enough for Musty, my aunt L, and myself. It's got 1 1/2 lbs of broccoli, and a cup and a half of packed spinach in it... really packed with healthy yumminess! Also, I used my homemade veggie broth, which helps keep the sodium down.
Here's the roasted bell pepper creme. I forgot to peel it after roasting it, and the sauce still came out great. The little black flecks are the charred bits from the skin. We've got quite a bit left over, so hopefully I'll find a use for it tomorrow or the next day.
Here's the finished soup, complete with a yummy dollop of the bell pepper creme. So pretty. (and red and green too... how christmassy!). See the big chunks of broccoli? Yum!
Last week, I picked up this naughty looking treat the store... I finally opened it up tonight and I really like it! Obviously, it's very sweet and dessert-y... and I think it's a fun tasty treat, especially warmed up. Musty doesn't like it, but he doesn't like peppermint (weirdo!). I recommend it for sure.
