Superb Cream of Broccoli and Potatoes

Broccoli is a very versatile vegetable, and delicious too! It is perfect for creamy soups, sauteed, roasted, you name it!
What's more, broccoli is a super power veggie, loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, folic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.

We accidentally put together some veggies and came up with this amazing creamy recipe that kids and adults absolutely love. You have to give it a try!

Cream of Broccoli and Potatoes
Servings: 8 portions

-  2 lbs of organic broccoli chunks
- 1  lb organic potatoes, sliced
- 1 cup of grated organic carrots

- 2 tablespoons of canola oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 cups of water

Saute diced onion and garlic with the oil until tender in a large pot. Add broccoli, potatoes, carrots and the water, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked. Add cream cheese.
