Cheddar Broccoli Soup

Although it's summer and we want to enjoy chilled foods...
sometimes a hearty hot soup is good for our insides.

Have you ever made cheddar broccoli soup at home?
Here's a super easy way to make some.

You will need broccoli, an onion, celery, red bell peppers
and some cheddar cheese. (I like to just use already shredded)

Dice an onion (this recipe is good for 2-3 people as a side soup) 
and throw that into the pot so that it gets cooking first. 
Add a coffee mugs worth of water with that onion. 
When the onion starts to get translucent- 
add our celery (diced up) and broccoli (bite size) 
(red bell pepper diced up is optional)

Once the veggies have cooked down and are soft, 
add a cup of shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 a cup of milk 
along with another full cup of water.
Let them have a good time in the  'hot tub' as they 
socialize and  get acquainted with each other. 
Once everything is smooth and mixed together....
Your super easy cheddar broccoli soup is done.  
You can add salt at the table to right into the soup
(1-2 teaspoons of salt or soy sauce)

Having some crusty bread to dip into your soup will be good also!
