Cauliflower Broccoli Cheese Soup

Even my husband, who's never been a big fan of broccoli, digs in to this creamy soup. It's a perfect way to enjoy the produce from our vegetable garden. —Betty Corliss, Stratton, Colorado

    Very good and creamy! I topped mine with some shredded cheddar cheese. It would also be good with some diced ham or mushrooms. I like the fact that it makes a small amount but could be easily doubled.

    I doubled the recipe and added extra shredded cheese. It was scrumptious! I would surely make it again. I couldn't get my husband to try it for he doesn't like cream soups! It was yummy! I had two bowls to make up for my husband having none!

    This soup is better by adding sliced mushrooms and leftover diced chicken. Serve with Bisquick cornbread for a really good weekend meal.
