Satisfying, hearty Broccoli Cheese Soup is loaded with veggies and makes a perfect dinner for the cool winter weather.
I love soup, I could probably eat it everyday! I especially love how it fills you up and makes you feel all warm and satisfied. But alas, I live in Florida and we only have a couple of weeks of real “soup weather” around here. So I take full advantage of the cold days to enjoy a nice hot bowl of soup. Last week were having a couple of those days in a row and so I whipped up a batch of this tasty soup for dinner one night.
Anytime I can get my husband to eat soup for dinner without a side of meat is a success. He’s not really a soup is a main dish kind of guy, but I LOVE it. This delicious Broccoli Cheese Soup is loaded with veggies and of course cheddar cheese. Broccoli, carrots and spinach combine with cheddar to make a truly satisfying soup that is sure to fill your soup craving – I hope you’ll enjoy!
