homemade soup for a rainy day – Fridays Off

homemade soup for a rainy day

It was another rainy day and L'il E was a tired baby after a weekend away at Nana and Papa's so he napped while I was busy in the kitchen. I made a batch of banana chocolate chip muffins and a pot of cream of broccoli soup (yum!). I love having portions of homemade soup in the freezer.

Itching for some homemade soup too?

Here's what you need:

  • 4 cups broccoli florets (2 heads of broccoli)
  • 1.5 cups veg stock
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup grated aged cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • salt and pepp to taste

Then you:

  1. Cook broccoli until tender in boiling water, drain.
  2. Add veg stock to cooked broccoli and puree in a food processor.
  3. In a pot on medium heat mix butter, flour, and coconut milk and cheese until bubbling.
  4. Add broccoli puree to milk mixture and stir until heated through.

Serve with warm baguette and cheese on a cold rainy day.

Yum!

Looks beautiful. I love how green it is! (Not all broccoli soups are!)
