Are you familiar with the song that Dana Carvey sang called “The Lady I Know?” For some reason that song was rolling around in my head as I was creating this recipe. It’s really a spoof of a song and mainly just repeats the lyrics “Chop’in broccoli.” Most people think of the song as the “Chop’in broccoli” song. In case you are not familiar with it, here is a link to Dana Carvey performing it with an orchestra. Chop’in broccoli  

Now that we’ve had a little humor for the day, we can turn our attention to this simple broccoli soup recipe. And yes, you will have to do a little “chop’in broccoli” to make it.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups broccoli, chopped
  2. 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 cup shredded cheddar (divided)
SAUCE/SOUP BASE
  1. 2 cups milk
  2. 2 tablespoons cream
  3. 2 tablespoons flour (all-purpose)
  4. Olive oil
  5. 1 tablespoon butter
  6. Salt & pepper to taste
Optional
  1. bacon bits to garnish
  2. Garlic herb salt
Instructions
  1. Saute onion in olive oil until translucent.
  2. Melt butter in the same pan, adding flour to form a rue (mixture will clump up).
  3. Whisk in the milk to create the sauce. Essentially you have made a cream sauce.
  4. Add the chopped broccoli and cook for a few minutes. If you like your broccoli crisp, keep an eye on it so it doesn't get mushy.
  5. Add one-half of the shredded cheese and melt in.
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper and garlic herb blend (optional) and taste test. Adjust seasonings if necessary.
  7. Before serving, drizzle a spoonful of cream, cheese, and bacon bits to garnish soup.

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a warm bowl of soup on a cold day. Many turn to their childhood favorites of tomato soup, served with a grilled cheese sandwich of course. No arguments here, that is still a top pick for my hubby. This broccoli cheese soup is so easy and tasty though you may have to add it to your top picks.
