Homestead Kitchen: Creamy Broccoli Soup

I am a little late here in the day for Food Blogging Friday.  But I wanted to share a soup I just made this afternoon.  It was delicious!!


 


Creamy Broccoli Soup


Crystal Miller


 


1 -2lb pkg. frozen broccoli, cooked and drained


2 or 3 green onions, sliced


4T butter


2 -8oz pkgs. cream cheese


2 c cream, half-n-half or whole milk (I use whole goats milk)


2 chicken bouillon cubes, optional (If you don’t use them, you may want to add extra salt)


2 cups water


1 t salt


Pepper, to taste


 


Saute onion in butter.  When the onion is soft add cream cheese and cream.  Stir this over medium heat until the cream cheese melts and it is smooth.  Add bouillon cubes and water.  Stir and let this heat to almost simmering.  Then add the cooked and drained broccoli.  Add salt and pepper and taste.  Add more salt or pepper if you would like. 


 


 


 


I made another batch of my pepperoni bread (there is instructions on making the bread w/pictures too!) to serve with the soup and it was a very yummy lunch!
