Broccoli Cheese Soup
Topic: Recipes

Apparently the gopher saw his shadow, thus 6 more weeks of Winter.

Oh, that we could be so lucky and only have 6 more weeks and not 3 more months, which is what I suspect will turn out to be the fact...

So, I think we need to be reminded of an easy recipe for a hearty soup, Broccoli Cheese Soup. Note that you can substitute frozen Cauliflower for the Broccoli or even choose a Broccoli-Cauliflower blend! 

 

 Broccoli-Cheese Soup

6 servings


Saute together in a soup pot in 2-3 tbsp. Olive oil:

½ onion, chopped fine

1 stalk of celery, chopped fine

1-2 cloves of garlic, chopped fine


Add:

32 oz chicken broth

16 oz. frozen, chopped broccoli

2 carrots, chopped into smaller pieces

Salt, pepper and parsley

Simmer with lid on until the broccoli and carrots are throughly cooked and soft about 30 minutes.

Stir in:

2 Tbsp. Flour mixed in 1 cup of milk

Simmer additional 5 minutes, while stirring.

Then, stir in:

8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese


Pulse with the immersion blender, directly in the pot,a few times to puree some of the soup, especially the larger pieces, leaving smaller pieces intact.
