Recipe: Broccoli-Cheese Soup

I've kind of adapted to my mom's "throw anything in the pot" attitude regarding soups. They come out with lots of flavor & zest that way!!! That being said, I rarely have a recipe, but wrote out a quick one for my broccoli cheese soup. It was really good... if you try it, let me know how it turns out!!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

2-3 carrots
Handful of Bell Peppers (red & green)
1 medium onion
2-3 large potatoes
Cauliflower (1 bunch or 1 bag frozen)
Broccoli (1 bunch or 1 bag frozen)
Flour (if needed)
Favorite Seasonings:
Tony Chachere's & ground pepper
Hickery Smoked Nutritional Yeast

  1. Peel & chop the carrots. Sautée in a large pot.
  2. Dice the onion & peppers. Add to the pot.
  3. Scrub & chop the potatoes. Add potatoes & just enough water to cover them in the pot. Sit on med-high heat until the potatoes are tender.
  4. When potatoes are tender, mash or puree them to your liking.
  5. Puree cauliflower & add.
  6. Add milk & cheese (I eyeballed it!)
  7. Chop the broccoli & add.
  8. Simmer until hot.
  9. If thickening needed, add a little flour.
I've made it with many variations... including adding corn, leaving the cauliflower out, I've even pureed peas & added them. You can basically do no wrong!! And it's fully endorsed by Tim which is something I can't always say.
