While I personally can't eat broccoli (allergies), my husband and kids are huge fans and this Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe is absolutely delicious.
The nice thing about this broccoli cheese soup is that it's quick and easy to prepare. Overall time is about 30 minutes or so and you'll have a vehicle to get your kids to eat their veggies! Sure, the Velveeta may not be super healthy but I figure if I can get them to eat vegetables at all, I'm winning!
What's better on a cold day (or a rainy one) than a nice hot bowl of soup? Not a whole lot I tell you. Enjoy and remember to share any pics of the soup you make on Instagram and tag me! I'd love to see how it turns out!
