Picture for Cheesy Veggie Soup

I never posted a picture for you to get excited about the Vegetable Cheese Soup. Here is a picture, and the recipe again.

Vegetable Cheese Soup

1 small bunch broccoli, cut in small pieces

1 onion, diced

1 cup diced carrots

1 cup diced potato

1 cup cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces

2 10 ¾ ounce cans chicken broth

2 tsp or cubes bouillon

2 cups milk

¼ cup flour

3 cups grated Cheddar cheese (or less)

1 tsp dry mustard

1/8 tsp cayenne

In a large pan, combine diced vegetables, bouillon and broth (I reserve broccoli tops and add towards the end). Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. In a medium bowl, mix milk with flour; blend until smooth. Gradually add milk mixture to vegetables, stirring constantly. Add grated cheese, dry mustard and cayenne pepper. Simmer until cheese melts.

I usually double this recipe.

Quick Fact: I was watching the Dr. Oz show the other night while folding laundry, and he said that broccoli helps detoxify the liver.

  1. This soup is really good and I felt good eating it knowing how many vegetables were in it. We did not double it and it worked out ok for us because my kids are . . . well, they are doing much better at trying new food.
