Broccoli Cheese Soup {gluten-free}

02/19/2014 - 8 comments

I don’t like broccoli.

It’s fuzzy.

But I do LOVE the nutritional benefits it has but I just need to have it pureed in order to enjoy it. So adding it to soup is the perfect solution for me.

This soup is thick.

It is filling and pretty much is all you need to make a meal.

Oh and it tastes awesome.

And not fuzzy.
