I paired this easy cheesy broccoli soup with an egg sandwich for a light lunch today but midway through the meal, I had to grab a gigantic chunk of crusty french bread as its every indulgent drop was begging for a sop. This soup is heavenly, you guys! And fast and simple to make, too. All you need are basic pantry ingredients and less than 30 minutes for a hearty warm-you-up comfort food that’s loaded with tender broccoli bits and cheesy goodness. Enjoy!
