  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces. Peel, trim, and cut carrots into 1/4" pieces. Trim ends off celery and cut into 1/4" dice. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼” dice. Drain, rinse, and cut roasted red pepper into 1/4" dice. Carefully cut openings into bread bowl tops and use your fingers to pull insides out, leaving 1/2" wall to prevent leakage. Reserve inner bread pieces.

  2. 2

    Start the Vegetables

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add celery, carrots, and onion to hot pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions become translucent, 2-3 minutes.

  3. 3

    Start the Soup

    Add 1 1/2 cups water and vegetable base to pot. Bring to a simmer and cook 5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Soup

    Stir in cream, roasted red pepper, and broccoli. Return to a simmer and stir in shredded cheddar (reserve a bit for garnish). Simmer until soup thickens enough to coat back of a spoon, 3-5 minutes. Taste, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper if desired. While soup simmers, bake bread bowls.

  5. 5

    Bake the Bread Bowls

    Place bread bowls and reserved inner bread pieces on prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, 5 minutes.

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Place a serving of soup in baked bread bowl. Garnish with remaining cheddar cheese.
