It has been below zero F. much of the past week...the perfect time for soup. We had been to Panera where dear one enjoyed a bowl of their broccoli cheese soup. He thought I should try making it, so I did! It turned out really well, in my opinion.
His opinion was that it was much thinner than the soup we at at Panera. Perhaps that was the point...but only perhaps. Actually, I had looked online and found some brassica soup recipes and combined ingredients and adapted the recipes, but when I actually made the soup, I misread my ingredient list and added way more chicken stock than the online recipes suggested. I like the soup just the way it is, especially since it is Spicy Broccoli Cheese Soup!
