Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup

31 Mar

I’m not sure if it is just stress, mild sleep deprivation, or both but I feel like I am coming down with something, again.  This isn’t really that outlandish given that I work in close range with many different people on a daily basis.  A patient actually sneezed on me today (eww) but I digress…

My plan was to make a nutrient rich, hearty soup to help nip any creepy germs attempting to wreak havoc on my immune system in the bud.

Ingredients:

1 box organic low sodium chicken broth (or veggie broth for a vegetarian version)

1 bag of broccoli cuts

I medium onion

2 garlic cloves

1 cup shredded cheese (I used 2% reduced fat sharp cheddar and parm)

EVOO

salt, pepper, herbs

Saute chopped onion and garlic in a little EVOO, add box of broth and bring to a boil.  Add broccoli until cooked.  Scoop out broccoli and onion with strainer and puree in a blender until smooth.  Add this mixture back to broth.  Melt in cheese.

Serve with a chunk of sourdough baguette!  Yum!

Tomorrow is Friday!  Woohoo!
