Oh how I love soup on a cold winter day! Snow is in the forecast for tomorrow, so I decided to make a pot of soup, but I wanted something different and new. I found this recipe on the blog RECIPE SHOEBOX. I made a few adjustments to suit my family's taste....I added cooked chicken, and instead of 1/2 lb of Velveeta cheese, I used 1 lb. we like things cheesy at our house, and I think it makes the soup a little thicker which we also like. I am posting the original recipe from RECIPE SHOEBOX, but I will put my additions and adjustments in parenthesis. Hope you give this one a try!
Broccoli Cheese Soup
(Recipe from: Recipe Shoebox blog)
1 tbs oil (I used olive oil)
3 cups water
2 cups uncooked egg noodles
1 pkg (10oz) chopped broccoli, thawed
3 cups milk
1 medium onion, chopped
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese, cubed ( I used 1 lb.)
pepper and garlic powder to taste ( I used 1/2 tsp minced garlic)
2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded ( this is my addition)
Heat oil, add onions. Saute 3 minutes. Add water. Heat to boiling. Stir in bouillon cubes until dissolved. Add noodles and salt gradually so mixture continues to boil. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broccoli and garlic, cook 3 minutes more. Add milk, pepper, and cheese (this is where I added my chicken). Stir until cheese melts. Serves 6.
