greens and goat cheese bisque
Happy almost weekend, friends! Or, in our case, happy almost birthday to me tomorrow, birthday to Avery Saturday and Mother’s Day on Sunday. Oy.
Right about now I’m elbow-deep in streamers, balloons and cake ingredients in preparation for the festivities (and in about 12 hours, I might even be neck-deep. I went a little overboard). You already know how I feel about the whole thing — excited? Yes. Anxious? YES. Have I been looking at old Instagram photos of newborn Avery all week long with heart pangs of nostalgia? I admit to nothing.
In any case, to keep myself fueled for the week, I’ve been slurping (ew — I mean, politely sipping) this delish greens and goat cheese bisque for lunch and sometimes dinner with a gooey, melty grilled cheese on the side. It’s been just the boost I needed.
This soup isn’t all just spring and healthy green veg vibes — it’s also a ton of YUM vibes, what with the addition of golden caramelized onions, fresh lemon juice, butter and creamy, tangy goat cheese. And yes, there is also a mammoth amount of greenery in this soup (like, nearly two pounds’ worth of spinach, kale and chard) so each sip is a spoonful of serious nutrition. It’s my fave kind of food, really.
And thanks to my blender, it all turns into a smooth puree of sippable deliciousness. Even Avery has been happily eating it with me for lunch and dinner. I assume she’s preparing herself for a weekend full of cake, too.
