If you ever want to shut me up, hand me a bowl of Brocolli and Cheese soup - then just step away.

It's gray and drizzly and a lil' bit cool outside this morning and my stomach is growling...


Brocolli and Cheese Soup
4 tbls butter
½ onion, roughly chopped
2 1/2 tbls flour
2 cups whole milk
1 cup chicken/vegetable stock
1 large head broccoli, roughly chopped
1 ½ cups grated cheese
additional milk and cheese may be needed

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for about 4 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for a minute or two. Pour in the milk and broth. Add the broccoli. Season with a dash of salt and black pepper.

Cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer on low until the broccoli is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.

Puree soup using a blender (in two batches), immersion blender, or even a potato masher. Stir in the cheese and allow to melt. Taste the seasonings and adjust if needed. Thin with additional milk to desired consistency.

To make it a little heartier, stir in some diced ham or leftover chicken/turkey. Serve with extra cheese and crackers.

So.... who's cooking?
comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where I've got my google search up and running because I'm having to look up "puree" and "immersion blender"... my tater mashers are photo holders...

  2. That soup looks good! Is it possible you could make that and NOT burn down your single-wide?

  3. Yum! And the thought of it in a bread bowl - too much to think about at 9:18 at night.
