Not Too Hot for Soup!

It's cool again here. And it's almost June!

I was a soap slave yesterday. 200 pounds of grapefruit soap in the morning.

When lunch time came I dug out this soup I started the other day....broccoli.

I used a couple of past their prime leeks and a head of organic broccoli....sauteed leek and broccoli stems in olive oil. Added chicken stock and simmered. Added the broccoli tops after the stems were tender. That's where I left it...in the refrigerator.

So when I needed something in a hurry for lunch, I added some milk, half and half and a bit of butter/flour roux to thicken. I don't puree. I like chunky soup. Finally, the cheese. Cheddar here. My favorite way to eat broccoli.
