Broccoli And Cheese Soup

Broccoli And Cheese Soup

My sweet aunt is recovering from surgery and can finally eat more than Jell-O and broth. Two weeks of bland food is torture! Coop to the rescue! I wanted to make something easy to eat, but packed with feel good flavor. This broccoli and cheese soup is it! broccoli-cheese-soupDon’t you hate when you buy soup to go from a restaurant and it thins as it cools? Not this stuff! It’s thicker than a Snicker! Look!broccoli-cheese-soup

And I haven’t even told you the best part yet. I made it in under 20 minutes. I know, right?!? AND, I just used 2% milk. No half and half. Not needed, boo! Just try my recipe. Don’t doubt me. 

Love,
