Broccoli Cheese Soup

Another CSA recipe! Beautiful full heads of broccoli have found their way into my CSA box. It’s the Kid’s fave vegetable and he loves to eat the “little trees.” While broccoli makes a great side dish, sometimes it’s nice to make it a star.

A big pot of hearty soup, creamy and cheesy, makes for a comforting warm winter meal!

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cans (14 oz) chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1 head broccoli (washed and cut into florets)
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
dash of nutmeg
dash of cayenne
salt and pepper
2-3 pieces of bacon, cooked

In a large pot over medium high heat, melt butter and add the flour to make a roux. Cook down for a few minutes.

Add the chicken broth, heavy cream and the broccoli. Season with nutmeg, cayenne, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

Uncover and add the cheese. Using a potato masher, mash up the broccoli and stir.

Serve immediately. Garnish with crumbled bacon.

  2. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else
    experiencing issues with your blog. It seems like some of
    the written text within your content are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
    happening to them too? This could be a problem with my browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Thank you

  3. Our mp3 downloading site offers an enormous choice of pop
    music, hip-hop, easy listening, hard rock, classical tracks, lounge, rap and lots of other music
    styles. Basic functions like bowel processing and the reproductive system are
    governed by a very basic processing etheric organ that is
    very physically manifesting of consciousness in
    both the quiet elimination of toxins and the powerful, sensory experience of sexuality.
    I can only hope to help carry that through together with the talent of SR Prozak
    and the other friendly contributors to the site, who have
    done more than I can ever imagine.

  4. With well over 535 million potential victims of having their personal information compromised,
    the cost of a breach to a company averaging over $7.
    Do not scroll down if you don’t want to see the answer. Most of this young generation tweets, and Google like it is the most common thing on earth.
