As a general rule, unless it’s Chicken Noodle, if my husband arrives home to find soup for dinner, there is some grumbling. Unfortunately for him, I love a hot bowl of soup with a crusty piece of French bread any day of the week, and I’m the chef.
Broccoli was on sale today, and so that’s what we had for our meatless Monday- a rich and creamy and surprisingly filling cream of broccoli soup. Even my husband had seconds and proclaimed himself “stuffed.”
This was the easiest thing to make, ever. It took about 10 minutes of work and 45 minutes of cook time, and it was finished. My three year old daughter ate a big bowl of it too. Very tasty.
