Soup’s On

It is a brrrhhh cold perfect for soup day here so we had broccoli cheese soup for lunch at the request of the 5 year old. This is one of our favorite winter recipes so I’m going to share it. If you are wondering what to have for dinner.. Maybe this will suit your tastes.

One Onion
One Stalk celery +- as desired
A tablespoon of butter
A tablespoon of minced garlic
One head or bag of broccoli
1 cup Velveta cubed (or other cheese)
½ cup of whatever cheese I have shredded
2 cups milk (more if you like)
1 can chicken Broth
1 tbs flour (or cornstarch)

Chop the onion (or run it through the food chopper so the munchkins cant identify it) and slice the celery up Toss Celery, onion, butter, and minced garlic in stock pot and sauté for a couple of minutes before you add chopped up broccoli and sauté until softened. (5-8 minutes) Then add the chicken broth and bring to boil. Stir in flour to thicken (can eliminate flour for low carb, or diabetic). Reduce heat to low and add milk and cheese. Be sure to stir regularly to prevent scorching as stove cools. When the cheese is melted and the soup is salted and peppered to your taste it is ready.
I like to sprinkle cheese and add pepper to the top of each bowl to make it look yummy.
The whole recipe is quite flexible and can be good with varying quantities of any ingredient. Grated carrots make a yummy addition to the soup too, but we didn’t have any today. Some times I make the soup with cauliflower or add cayenne pepper to spice it up.

These are my my first ever home made pumpkin pies! I substituted splenda and brown sugar twin for the diabetic touch, but they look and smell pretty good.

Thanks to my recipe assistant!
