Default Broccoli/Cauli Cheese Soup

I cobbled together this recipe today. It's so yum!

Ingredients:
24 ounces of Broccoli/Cauliflower mix (I used a 12oz bag of each)
4 celery sticks, chopped
Water
6-8 oz heavy cream
8-10 oz cheddar cheese (I used shredded)

Add veggies to a pan and cover with water.
Bring to a boil and cook 15 mins.
Turn to medium heat.
Pour out half the water.
OPTIONAL: Take a stick blender or hand masher and mash 2/3 of the veggies into a thick pulp. This will help your soup stay thick.
Add cream, cheddar cheese and salt/pepper to taste.
Cook just until cheese is melted and serve! I add either a small amount of cheese or sour cream on top.
(If its too thick, just add a bit of water.)

Makes 8 servings.

We didn't make it to freezing (eating the last bowl of it now ) but I can't see why it wouldn't. It heats up nicely as well.

The bacon additional sounds wonderful.

The taste is pretty good but mine was too watery - and I dumped about 3/4 of the water out. I'll try again with even less water.

Blending up part of the veggies makes the sauce thicken nicely. Might try that.

I just made this. I used 2 bags of veggies (broc and cauliflower), added chicken broth to the water. I also poured out more than half of the water afterward. Used half a stick of butter. Since I didn't have a lot of cheddar cheese, I used half shredded cheddar and half shredded mozzarella, heavy cream, bacon. It came out smooth, creamy, rich. VERY good!!! I can see myself making this on a regular basis. Thank you so much!

it is a delicious creamy soup. I don't add the chicken stock because my dd is a vegetarian and this is actually a soup the whole family will eat.

I make something vaguely similar. Every now and again, I just get all the old (low carb) veggies out of my fridge, boil them up together with a knob of butter, add cheese and then liquidise them.
