I rated this recipe 5 stars because I think the writer did a fantastic job of explaining how to make a broccoli cheese soup using fresh and natural ingredients.
I have to admit, I made this recipe adding my own twist to it. I will include my changes and additions below.
First, I sauteed half a finely chopped one, one large stick of finely chopped celery, and 1/4 of a red bell pepper, diced. I sauteed them using a small amount of olive oil, and threw in about tablespoon of minced garlic just as they began to sweat.
I also used 1 cup of heavy whip because I had that on hand, and it needed to be used. I omitted the water, and instead used 1 cup of 2% milk. I did use a quart of chicken stock and the flour. I also used fresh broccoli, uncooked broccoli as opposed to frozen or previously cooked. I also through in 1 tsp. of dried minced onion, 1 tsp. dried parsley, and doubled the cheese.
I know the red bell pepper, celery, and parsley might sound a little wild, but if you are looking to jazz this recipe up, that really did the trick!
Thank you to the writer for a great basic recipe on cooking with cheddar!
