This evening I made cream of broccoli soup. It was very easy and we really enjoyed it. Simply steam a bunch of broccoli until almost tender but still bright green. Use purified water for steaming, then use that and some milk later to thin down the soup a bit. Peel and slice the thick stems and steam them too. Spoon the steamed broccoli into a blender with some pepper jack cheese and a little Cheddar or Colby cheese and give it a whirl. Add the steaming water, milk and a little salt. Simple, delicious and healthy for you! Freezes well!
