Broccoli-Parmesan-Yogurt Soup

Doug and I witnessed a miracle this morning … our first South
Carolina snowflakes!! We watched in amazement as they drifted down,
disappearing before ever touching the ground.

All I could think about was whether-or-not I had enough
ingredients on hand to make soup. After all, there was no way we’d be driving
to the store in this weather! (Hey, we’re not used to this type of weather; please don’t judge!)

Fortunately, there was fresh broccoli and enough other
ingredients to make Broccoli-Parmesan-Yogurt Soup. Served with a little lavash,
we were all set for a very satisfying lunch.

Using an immersion blender, regular blender or a food
processor, puree the broccoli mixture. (NOTE: If using a regular blender or
food processor, blend soup in batches then return soup to the pot.) If the soup
looks too thick, stir in a little water.

Once pureed, and with the heat still off, whisk-in the Parmesan
cheese and Greek yogurt until well blended.
