A comforting bowl of homemade soup made in 30 minutes. It is possible! This Broccoli Cheese Soup is an easy, one-pot vegetarian meal that is gluten free too!
Homemade doesn’t have to mean complicated or time consuming. Some of my favorite recipes are one-pot 30 minute meals.
I am especially a fan of recipes that require very little prep. Come on, chopping veggies is tedious!
That is why I have a freezer full of vegetables. Frozen fruits and veggies are convenient, affordable and nutritious. Oh and, they come pre-chopped . . . Bonus!
Frozen produce is such a time saver. I also don’t have to feel bad about throwing away fresh fruits and vegetables that go bad before I have a chance to use them. I hate wasting food.
My freezer is always stocked with frozen broccoli, carrots, corn and (my personal favorite) chopped onions.
You know how everyone has a trick to keep from crying while chopping onions. Well, my trick is to buy frozen chopped onions! Not only do I not cry . . . I don’t even have to chop them!
Corn and broccoli are my daughter’s favorite. So I always make sure that I have those on hand. With nearly 90 percent of Americans failing to meet their dietary recommendations for vegetables, I want to teach my daughter good eating habits early on.
A few examples of quality frozen produce brands are: Bird’s Eye, Green Giant and Wyman’s.
UC Davis, in partnership with the Frozen Food Foundation, conducted a study on frozen fruits and vegetables. The study revealed that frozen fruits and vegetables are most often nutritionally equal to (and in some cases better than) their fresh counterparts.
Freezing fruits and vegetables is nature’s pause button!
This Broccoli Cheese Soup couldn’t be much easier. If you can toss ingredients in a pot and stir . . . you can make this soup!
