Broccoli Cheese Soup
Just the ticket for a cold day's lunch or dinner starter."I followed this recipe from BigOven.com fairly closely. Only big variation was that i think it a waste just to use the florets ... so i steam the stocks, puree them in food processor and add them back to the soup. It does make it thicker and more Brocollie-ee. Me i think it was an improvement ... denise said the soup at BJ's was thinner and she seemed to like that better ... but she said mine was good too." - sethR
