Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Ham

Broccoli Cheddar Soup It's a Keeper

It’s a balmy 9 degrees outside right now in northeastern Pennsylvania.   As the snow flakes are flying, I thought it would only be appropriate to share a soup recipe with you today.  Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Ham to be specific.

My family loves broccoli.  Whether it’s steamed, raw, roasted or baked, we just can’t get enough of the green stuff.  Some of our favorite broccoli recipes are Gnocci and Broccoli in Parmesan Cream Sauce, Broccoli Slaw and Sicilian Roasted Broccoli (a spin off of my cauliflower recipe).  And, this soup recipe will now be added to the top of the list!

We absolutely loved this soup!  It was extremely hearty and filling and chocked full of lots of broccoli.  Serve it with some crusty bread or in a bread bowl and you have a perfect meal!

This soup was so easy to make too.  It was done in under 30 minutes!  You can’t beat that for a quick weeknight meal.  And, it’s flexible.  If you don’t like ham, leave it out and you have a great meatless meal.  If you like your soup chunky, don’t puree it completely.  I love a recipe with options!

I also loved that it was even more flavorful the next day.  In fact, next time I make this soup, I’ll make it the day before I plan to eat it so the flavors have time to come together.

This recipe is a definite keeper!
