Delicious broccoli and cheese soup

Broccoli and cheese soup …creamy, delicious and ready to go in 30 minutes!

This recipe was inspired by a little bakery I visited in NYC. Their broccoli and cheese soup with bread bowls was my absolute favorite! I’ve tried making it and never seemed to have the ingredients right. I finally have the perfect recipe. This soup is rich, creamy and perfect for a cold winter day. Heck, I’d even eat this soup on a hot summer day. It is just that good! My whole family loved it. We cannot wait to make it again.

I picked up the bread bowls at a local bakery, but I cannot wait to try and make my own someday!
