Many years ago I was going to bring some kind of dish to my cousin’s house for a get together with a bunch of friends. Everyone was bringing different things for a pot luck and I thought to myself what am I going to bring? I noticed that I had an abundance of extra broccoli in the house because my son was trying a new diet of strictly chicken breasts, rice and broccoli. He called it a bodybuilding diet.
In any event, with all the excess broccoli hanging around I thought I’d whip up a dish that featured the broccoli. Being as I was going to bring a crock pot for my dish to keep it warm all day I thought why not make a nice broccoli soup. I tried this simple recipe and found it to my liking because it’s simple and tasty.
I already had the broccoli covered so all I had to do was search around the kitchen for the other items and I was in. Fortunately I already had the other items so I was good to go on starting the dish. It took no time to make and with the little ingredients involved you’d think it wasn’t that tasty, but it turned out great!
Everyone at the party had a bowl and the reviews were very favorable. Highly recommend you give it a try for your own party. Let me know what your guests think!
