Too much broccoli

A few days ago I was complaining to a coworker that I may have too much broccoli maturing at the same time. He suggested that I make broccoli-cheese soup. “Holy crap” I thought, “What a great idea.” This suggestion wasn’t anything earth-shattering, but it did remind me that even though I was trying to stagger planting to not have everything ready to harvest all at once, having a bunch of one thing isn’t necessarily a bad thing. What I was almost dreading, I now see as an opportunity. I get to try to make something I have never made before. With the invention of Velveeta, broccoli-cheese soup is quite simple.

The recipe I found makes a tasty soup. Its nothing super spectacular, but I would recommend it. I found the recipe on, and the only alteration I made was to use the 2% cheese rather than the regular, and to use the fresh broccoli rather than frozen. I should have more broccoli to use shortly, so if you have a different recipe you recommend, feel free to post it.

    Oh, my! Too much broccoli? Freeze some for wintertime, as well!

    Agreed. Broccoli flash freezes and keeps well because of the realtively low water content. And it will be so much better in the winter than frozen from the store. Or you could feed it to some local rabbits.

    What a pleasure to get to know your blog! It’ all so authentic and vivid!

    I’m into blogging and gardening too, with a slightly different approach, though. I’d love if you visited my blog ( and left any comment. The pictures there have been taken in my area, southern Brazil, where I live.

    BTW, I love broccoli.
