Since our son is a broccoli grower, our friends keep supplying us with recipes using broccoli. To this family favorite, add a tossed salad, rolls, fruit and cookies, and you have an easy but delicious supper full of nutrition. —Dorothy Child, Malone, New York
"My husband's aunt shared the recipe for this creamy soup, which tastes like you spent all day cooking," pens Trinity Nicholas from Mt.Carbon, West Virgina. "It's very filling with a salad and bread. We spoon the leftovers over baked potatoes."
That's why she often serves Cheesy Broccoli Soup. "This creamy and flavorful soup goes together in a flash because it uses frozen chopped broccoli and process American cheese," she explains. Plus, it's easy to warm up if Bob works late.
"He likes it so much that when he grocery shops, he always makes sure the ingredients for this soup are on the list," she reports.
"When my husband and I visit fresh-food stands, we often come home with more vegetables than we can eat," Marge Hill shares from Glenside, Pennsylvania. "I lightened up this tarragon-flavored soup to use up the broccoli we buy. I like it with crusty bread, a salad or a sandwich."
