Ingredients

    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    Salt and pepper
    2 small yellow-fleshed potatoes, such as yukon gold (10 ounces total), peeled and finely chopped

    3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
    Plus 2 ounces additional shredded cheese for garnish

Directions

In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over med-high heat. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the potatoes and 3 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil; lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the broccoli, cover and cook just until tender, about 7 minutes. Using a blender, puree half the soup; combine with the other half. Stir in 3/4 cup of shredded cheese. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm over low heat. Add additional shredded cheese on top, if desired. Makes 4 (1 cup) servings.
