Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces. Peel, trim, and cut carrots into ¼" pieces. Trim ends off celery stalks and cut into ¼" dice. Halve and peel onions. Cut halves into ¼” dice. Drain, rinse, and cut roasted red pepper into ¼" dice. Carefully cut top ½" off of bread bowls and use your fingers to pull insides out, leaving ½" wall to prevent leakage. Reserve inner bread pieces.

  • Step 2 - Start the Vegetables

    Start the Vegetables

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

    Stir in cream, roasted red pepper, and broccoli. Return to a simmer and stir in shredded cheddar (reserve a bit for garnish).
