This recipe almost isn’t worth posting, there isn’t much involved in the preparation and I wasn’t terribly impressed with the results. However, I did a photo shoot so I figured I might as well post it and let you all be the judge of it’s tastiness. (It wasn’t bad! I just expected more). I also made this recipe back in September before I moved. I have a collection of recipes that I have already tried and photographed but not yet posted. Enough suspense…… Here’s the recipe:
From Hungry Girl’s 200 under 200 cookbook: Cheesy “broc-star” Soup
1 tray Green Giant Just for One! Broccoli & Cheese Sauce
1/2 cup plain light soy milk
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese, chopped into pieces
Salt and black pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS: To prepare Broccoli & Cheese Sauce, pull film back slightly to vent. Microwave for 1.5 minutes. Pull film back all the way but do not remove, and stir in cheese wedge pieces. Place film back over the tray and microwave for an additional 45 seconds. Mix well, and then allow to cool slightly. Place broccoli-cheese mixture in a blender with soymilk. Blend at medium speed until desired consistency is reached. (Blend very briefly if you like broccoli pieces in your soup–blend longer for fully pureed soup). Transfer soup to your favorite microwave-safe bowl (or your second favorite one if you fave isn’t clean). Heat soup in the microwave for 45 seconds, or until hot. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Then slurp it up!
