Easy Artichoke Soup

Artichokes get a little heartier with this quick soup

Go beyond steamed artichokes with this simple-to-make soup, which is luxuriously creamy even though it's dairy-free.


2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 large yellow onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 12-oz. russet potato, cut into 1-inch pieces
6 garlic cloves, sliced
4 c. reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 8-oz. packages frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste


In a large saucepan or a small stockpot over medium-high heat, warm olive oil. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add potato and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Add broth and artichokes. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until vegetables are very tender, about 5 minutes. Add dill and parsley and purée in a blender or a food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Makes 8 (1-cup) servings.
