|Easy Broccoli Soup|
For today's lunch, we had Broccoli Soup, the EASY way, in about an hour, with no cans, stock, or bouillon.
2 medium potatoes
1 pound frozen broccoli
4 cups milk
2 cups water
1/2 tsp "lite" salt, or salt to taste right before serving.
grated cheddar cheese
Pop the broccoli into the microwave for 6 minutes, or cook in a small saucepan.
Meanwhile, peel and thinly slice the potatoes. The thinner you slice them, the sooner your soup will be done. Put the sliced potatoes in a soup pot with the milk and turn the burner on "low."
When the broccoli is cooked, blend it with two cups of water until liquified. Pour the blended broccoli into the soup pot.
Cook on low, with occasional stirring, until the potatoes "melt," thickening the soup. Whisking the soup will speed it along. Season to taste. Garnish each bowl with shredded cheddar.
