Tasty Tuesday Cheesy Broccoli Soup!

While strolling by my garden on the way to the barn a few days ago, among the broccoli that had gotten to the point of actually blooming, I spotted some decent-looking heads that didn't even have those nasty little worms on them that broccoli tends to attract in late summer. Apparently, the weather has been cool enough to get rid of them and allow the plants to grow as they should. So I picked it and got the urge for some broccoli soup. The idea isn't new, but I'd never made any before. Turned out rather well, actually.

Cheesy Broccoli Soup 

1 large bunch of broccoli, or about 2 cups, chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large onion, peeled and chopped.
3 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup cream
1 cup water
1 cup grated Colby jack cheese
Salt and pepper

Heat butter in a heavy soup pot, saute pepper and onion until onions are transparent. Add broccoli and 1 cup water. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender. Puree in blender until smooth. Return to the pot and add 1/2 cup milk and the cheese. Heat until cheese melts. Add cream and more milk to achieve the desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. I love the new look of the blog Mrs Brooks! You should write a cookbook too, I love your recipes.

  5. Thanks, Cushie! I've thought about it. I could probably compile a cookbook from the recipes I've already posted on the blog!

  6. LOL! Maybe we should have a God Bless the Penis week here on the blog.

    No. Wait. We do that every week!

  7. Looking good!! I think I need to help with clean up around this bright sparkling new page.. *drip, drip, Slurp* THAT"S Much better!! Cheryl!! You know I'd be glad to help you with Your EROTIC Cook Book. After all we know good cooking is the way to a man's penis. RIGHT?

  8. LOL! Considering how many recipes you've contributed to the blog, you'd have to co-author it with me!

  9. I'm not sure which one I like more - the soup or the man. Both keep you warm when it's cold. Both feel silky smooth when you swallow. Both taste creamy and divine. Damn - decisions, decisions.

    Definitely the man - no dishes to wash when you're finished!

  10. Good point about the dishes, but he wouldn't fill your stomach. At least, I hope not!

  11. LOL!! I'm afraid we'd have to wait 9 months to find out about that Cheryl. It could happen. He looks very potent.

    Love creamy soup recipes! Can't wait to try this one.

  13. I went out and checked my broccoli again, just in case I could make more soup. Alas, it's all blooming,, but very pretty!
