Here’s another sneaky semi-homemade meal for you to keep in your arsenal…I love broccoli cheese soup when it has two things, fresh big pieces of broccoli & lots of gooey cheese. This version is so good in my opinion that I never bother to make it from scratch. Perfect for a last minute lunch on a rainy day!
Cheater’s Broccoli Cheese Soup
In a microwave safe container with lid microwave fresh broccoli florets with a couple tablespoons of water for 3 minutes. (make sure lid seals, you want it to steam the broccoli) Drain, set aside. In a saucepan combine 1 can broccoli cheese soup, 1 can cheddar cheese soup, 1 & 1/2 cans of milk & cook over low heat until combined. Add a handful of shredded cheddar & cooked broccoli. Season well with salt & pepper. Sometimes I also add some smoked paprika, a dash of mustard powder or even some garlic powder. Just depends on what mood I’m in.
