So totally random post today!
I made Broccoli Cheese soup today I thought I would share my "recipe"
I have to preface this by saying:
I am a fly by the seat of my pants kinda girl when it comes to soups. I change it up regularly and always change it up!
1/4 c Butter
1 onion, chopped
1 bunch of fresh broccoli <--This is one thing I NEVER substitute. It has to be the real thing.
3-14.5 oz cans of vegetable broth <-I prefer Swansons or Cottage Inn
8 oz give or take shredded cheeses
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 can Campbell's condensed broccoli cheese soup-you could use cheddar soup, chicken, or whatever
Melt butter and add chopped onion. Cook until onions are softened-starting to brown.
Add chopped broccoli and cover with broth.
Simmer 10-15 minutes.
Add in cheese until melted. Today I used some mixed extra sharp Adams reserve cheddar and regular mild cheddar as well as a few oz mozzarella and for fun 4oz cream cheese softened. Be warned though do NOT use Fat free cream cheese it doesn't melt at all.
Do I have more than 8 oz of cheese here? YOU BETCHA! I love cheese:)
Add in your cream of whatever or broccoli cheese soup base.
Warm thoroughly and enjoy!
