Ingredients:

  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth 
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese 
  • 3 ribs celery, finely chopped 
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

For Finishing:

Instructions:

  1. Cut cream cheese into 8 cubes. Set aside to soften while you work on the rest of the recipe.
  2. Heat olive oil in large pot over medium-high heat until very hot, a few minutes. Add celery, carrots, onions, salt, and black pepper. Cook until onions are translucent, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and tomato paste until incorporated and fragrant, about 1 minute. You may notice flavorful browned bits collecting on bottom of pot.
  3. Add broth to pot, and briefly scrape along bottom to loosen any browned bits. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium. Vigorously whisk cream cheese cubes into soup until fully incorporated, about 5 minutes. Reduce to medium-low heat. Simmer uncovered to let flavors combine, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. The soup should be smooth and creamy, with a pale orange color.
  4. Turn off heat. Stir in bell pepper and parmesan cheese until well-mixed, about 1 minute. Serve), passing around extra parmesan cheese for topping. Enjoy your soup!
