Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

For lunch today I decided to make something different. I wanted to make something other than my normal grilled cheese sandwich or leftovers that I usually have. So I made Broccoli & Cheddar Soup! It was delicious, and I felt like I was eating something healthy since the recipe calls for lots of broccoli... even though there was also a bunch of cheese in the soup... oh well! 

I always love trying out new recipes, and usually have great success with them, and this soup turned out to be awesome. The only thing I did differently from the recipe was use a hand blender to make the broccoli smooth. Hope you can try out this recipe sometime soon, it's delicious! 

Ingredients:
- 6 Cups Broccoli
- 1/2 Cup Flour
- 6 Cups Chicken Broth
- 2 1/2 Cups Grated Cheddar Cheese
- Bacon, Crumbled (Optional)
- 1 1/2 Cups Milk
Instructions:
1. Chop broccoli finely and cook until tender. Set aside.
2. In a large pot, combine broth and milk. Slowly whisk in the flour and then cook over medium-high heat until it starts to boil.
3. Add chopped broccoli and reduce heat to medium.
4. Cook 4-5 minutes and then add cheese. Once cheese has melted, you’re done!
5. Serve, topped with bacon if you wish.
Makes 3 servings.

    I'm impressed you whipped up soup for lunch - I, too, go with easy. The only soup I have at lunch time is canned (love Amy's brand) :)
