3T butter
2T minced onion
2C fresh broccoli (with stems)
4 cloves garlic
1t dried oregano
4C chicken broth

1/2C milk
1C cream
grated mozzarella cheese
  1. In a pot, heat the butter then sauté onions and broccoli until onions are translucent.
  2. Add garlic and oregano and sauté for a minute.
  3. Pour in chicken broth and simmer, uncovered, until broccoli is tender. Cool.
  4. Transfer mixture to a blender and add Cheddar Cheese. Process until smooth.
  5. Return the soup to the pan and add milk and cream. Stir for 2 minutes over low heat.
  6. Pour soup into bowls then top generously with mozzarella cheese.
  7. Microwave or broil until the cheese is melted.

Yummm, I just looove cheese and my little missy loves Broccoli. This is just perfect for us!
