Broccoli Cheese Soup
The holidays and three little boys have a knack for getting in the way of my blog posts sometimes and this week is an example of such. I made this soup over a week ago but am now just finding time to write about it. Ahh…no reason to bemoan a busy schedule – I’d probably complain about being bored if my schedule was less packed.
At any rate, we love soups in our house when the weather gets cold. I have a few staples that we rotate through quite often but I am also always trying to develop new recipes.
This one came about because I had some extra broccoli and no idea what to do with it. And truthfully, I created this recipe to be “Broccoli Cheddar Soup” only to realize I was low on cheddar. Not to worry though, I had plenty of mozzarella on hand and the sharpness of the cheddar balanced nicely with the creamy mozzarella.
I served this soup in a bread bowl and called it a meal, but it would be just as good piping hot, in a bowl, on its own. But really – what’s better than a crusty bread bowl filled with creamy, cheesy soup?
