This afternoon I decided I was in the mood for soup. I searched the internet for a recipe, that seemed appealing. I found one for broccoli and cheese soup. I changed the recipe quite a bit. Here is my version, and a link to the original one. http://www.cookitsimply.com/recipe-0010-065u6.html (the original recipe)
The soup was a household hit! There were no left-overs.
Broccoli and Cheese Soup
1 lb fresh broccoli
Fresh grated cheddar
3 medium-large sized potatoes
2 white onions
1-2 garlic cloves
2 packages of vegetable stock (made according to package directions)
3 cups water ( and 2/3 cup water for each package of vegetable stock)
Parsley (dried flakes)
1 tsp white sugar
Prepare all vegetables (peal and chop). Place the oil in a large pot and add the oil. On medium heat fry the onion and garlic in the pot until lightly brown. Now add the potatoes. Stir well. Add the prepared vegetable stock and all the water. Also add the tsp sugar and the salt, pepper, and parsley. Stir well. Let the mixture cook for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Now add the broccoli and add a little more salt and pepper. Cook for about 6-7 minutes. Now pour or spoon the mixture into a blender or food processor and whiz for a few seconds. Then pour your soup back into it’s pot. Now add your grated cheddar cheese. Heat on low for a few minutes and serve.
I served the soup with some garlic tortilla chips that I made.
