Brad's panini w/ cream of broccoli & turnip green soup instructions

  1. Start with the soup. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium heat. When heated add butter and shallots. Sauté until shallots start to caramelize. Add garlic and sauté 2 more minutes..
  2. Separate the broccoli stalks from the broccoli florets. Slice broccoli stalks thinly. Set aside..
  3. When shallots are done, add broth and vinegar. Bring to a boil. Add broccoli stalks and cook until they tenderize..
  4. Then add broccoli florets, turnip greens, and tarragon. Simmer until everything tenderizes..
  5. Use an immersion blender to blend everything in the pot until it is smooth. Add half and half. Bring back to a simmer. Stir often. add salt and pepper to taste. If you are good with the consistency, move to next step. If you feel it needs to be a little thicker, mix cold water and corn starch at a 1:1 ratio. Slowly add to simmering soup until you get desired consistency..
  6. Add cheddar to soup and stir until melted..
  7. I used a George foreman grill to cook the paninis, but in a pan works too..
  8. Butter the outsides of the slices of bread. On the insides, spread mayo and mustard. Next layer your desired ingredients on your sandwiches. Use a little cheese in between each layer to kind of act like glue..
  9. Grill or fry until golden brown on both sides and cheese is melted. Slice sandwiches in half..
  10. Add soup to a bowl. Garnish with fried onions. Serve sandwiches on a plate. Enjoy..
