Broccoli with Chicken Soup Purée
by James Belardo

Here’s a great way to use the ‘left over’ vegetables from your homemade Chicken stock (try our version). While the leftover meat can be used to make sandwiches they also can be used in soups. A good thing about making a vegetable purée is that it’s creamy without the cream! It’s great for milk/cream sensitive people and tastes just as delicious. This recipe is based on out Cauliflower with Chicken Soup Purée.

Ingredients
1 cup precooked (shredded) chicken (from your homemade Chicken stock)
2 cups Vegetable purée (using the vegetables from homemade Chicken stock)
2 cups Chicken stock (try our homemade version)
2 cups water
1 head broccoli, cup into small flowerettes. Cut the stalks into small pieces
Flat-Leaf Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste

Starch (suggested, but not needed)
Brown Rice
pasta

Directions
1. On medium-high, heat the purée with 1 or 2 cups of water
