So it is March 12... and I live in North Carolina. Should I have expected to see 2 inches of snow fall this morning? NO! But I did. Sitting there looking at the pretty white stuff I decided that tonight would be a great night for soup!
Even though all 2 inches of snow were fully melted by 4:00 PM-- it was still a soup night in my house!
What you will need:
3 Cups of Chicken Bone Broth (or Chicken Stock-- but do yourself a favor and use Bone Broth as much as possible. It makes dishes richer, and it's so good for you)
1 - bag of frozen Broccoli Florets (about 1 1/4 cup total)
4 TBSP of Butter (for added richness and added good fat)
2 Cups of Heavy Cream
2 Cups of Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
In soup pan on high heat -- bring Chicken Bone Broth and Butter to a rolling boil
Add in Frozen Broccoli Florets
Continue to Boil Broccoli until nice and soft - stirring and breaking up the Broccoli pieces (I boiled for about 15 min.)
Add Salt and Pepper to taste
Lower heat to medium- high and Add in 2 Cups of Heavy Cream. Bring back up to a low boil
Start stirring in shredded Cheddar Cheese about a 1/2 cup at a time and wait until that portion is melted until you add the next 1/2 cup.
Once fully melted-- Soup is ON!
