Well, yesterday I gave you Cream of Green Chile Soup, and today I give you Cream of Artichoke Soup. I made both of these soups in one day and for dinner we had the two of them combined! It was very, very good! This is an easy soup to make and very tasty with the gentle flavors of the artichoke hearts! Ready to head off into the kitchen? Let’s go!
2 TBS butter
1 small onion chopped
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
2 #’s of frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted
4 cups of vegetable broth, or if you prefer chicken broth
2 cups of heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
First get your butter melted in a stock pot. Then, just like in the cream of green chile soup, start to cook the onions until just soft. Then add in the garlic. When the garlic aromas hit your nose add in the artichokes.

Cook this for about 5 minutes and then add in your vegetable broth.

Cook this until the artichoke hearts are extremely soft, about a half hour.
Now get out your handy dandy blender or food processor and puree the soup until it is smooth.

Return this to your stock pot and add in the cream.

Bring this to a simmer and cook for about a half hour to reduce it. Then add your salt and pepper to taste. Here is the soup when it is done!
