Weekday Meals

I’m going to try to post a super quick meal idea once a week. This is the kind of meal that can be put together with just a tiny bit of work. It is tasty and can be ready in under 20 minutes. We ate it with biscuits and a salad.


Cheddar, White Bean and Broccoli Soup

– chop up a bunch of broccoli (mine had 3 heads), one onion and a clove of garlic
– boil it all in just enough water to cover
– once the broccoli is tender use a glass measuring cup (or a slotted spoon, or a ladle) and remove about half of the vegetables, set these aside
– take off the heat
– purée the remaining stuff
– throw everything else back in
– add about a cup of white beans (use your best judgement based on how much broccoli you have)
– put back on medium heat
– add about a cup of cream, milk or broth (water would work too, but would be less flavourful)
– add half a cup of cheddar (or however much you want!)
