I love the idea of Cream of Broccoli Soup, however, the reality is often not so great. For some reason, soggy broccoli floating in a sea of melted processed cheese is not my idea of a comforting soup.
So here is my version of a great broccoli soup; it’s based on an Emeril Lagasse recipe and if you like broccoli I am guessing you’ll love this soup too.

No one was in the mood for spicy food, so I adjusted the spices and made a White Bean & Chicken Soup instead. It was plenty flavorful, but mild enough for the kids.
Stew is a perfect slow cooker meal. It’s great for a busy day, and this version is super easy and doesn’t even require browning the meat first.
There is something particularly comforting about soup on a cold, dreary day. Maybe it’s the vegetables or the warmth, but a good soup is high on my list… Read More »
