  7. Place cooked vegetables into a food processor and puree until smooth.

  8. Transfer puree to a large saucepan over low heat. Stir chicken broth and yogurt into puree until well blended. Cover and let simmer until incorporated, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; sprinkle with Pecorino Romano cheese. Serve.
