A simple, frugal bowl of comfort. If you’re not a fan of the broccoli and cauliflower combo, feel free to use just one and not the other.
Cheesy Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup
- 3-4 cups chopped broccoli/cauliflower combo (fresh or frozen)
- 3 T. butter
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 6 cups chicken stock or broth
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 12 oz. egg noodles
- 4 cups milk
- 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Steam broccoli and/or cauliflower. In a large pot, melt butter. Saute onion in butter until clear. Add chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Add noodles. Boil 3 minutes. (If you’re using thicker homemade or frozen egg noodles, boil 10 minutes). Reduce heat.
Add steamed, finely chopped or mashed, veggies. Add garlic powder, milk, and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Do not boil.
I use my Immersion Hand Blender to blend the veggies. Simply dump them in before the noodles and give it a spin. Love that thing! Amazingly, it sat in my cabinet unused for 11 years. (True story… that I’ll tell later.)
We like to eat this meal with fresh muffins. Here are a few of our favorites:
