It was raining today. Little ones were under the weather, and I didn’t feel like cooking. So I knew I had broccoli in the fridge leftover from the night before and some cheese and milk. Put them all together and what do you get? Easy and delicious lunch in no time at all!!
Broccoli Cheddar Soup
(This recipe would serve 2)
1 1/2 c. cooked broccoli
1/2 onion chopped fine
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp flour of choice (I use gluten free)
2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
2 C. milk
Directions: Place chopped onion and butter in saucepan and cook until onions are transparent. Add flour and continue to stir until you create a rue (paste like consistancy). Add broccoli, cheddar cheese, and milk stirring on low until cheese is melted. Add spices and pull off the heat. Serve.
You can also add some dried mustard to add a little tang to the soup. That’s good too!! Took me about 15 minutes to make this start to finish. And for a busy mom, that’s a recipe for me!!
