Instructions 

  •       Heat up olive oil in a 5.5 qt dutch oven
  •       Add shallot to the pan and cook until translucent
  •       Add garlic to pan and cook until fragrant
  •       Add potato and gently fry for about 10 min on high heat, stirring frequently.  If the garlic, shallot & potato cubes start sticking , add a cup of broth to deglaze.
  •       Add 3.5 c. broccoli and the rest of the stock to the pan and bring everything to boil then simmer 10-15 min until all the vegetables are fork tender
  •       In the meantime, roast pine nuts in a non-stick pan on high heat until golden and air fry

 ½ c. broccoli florets at 390 for 5 min.  If you don’t have an air fryer – pan fry is fine, this is just for the garnish and totally optional

  •       Once veggies are soft, turn off the stove and use an immersion blender (or to a high speed blender) to puree the soup
  •       Stir in spinach and allow it to wilt in the hot soup and then blend again until smooth
  •       Add salt, pepper, paprika and nutritional yeast and stir
  •       Add a full container of Treeline Sea Salt cheese to the soup and stir until combined and then blend one more time until everything is perfectly smooth and creamy
  •        Garnish with roasted pine nuts, sesame seeds, a drizzle of olive oil and air-fried broccoli

 Enjoy!
