Recently I've been aggressively increasing the number of recipes on my "to try" list from blogs I read on a regular basis. Ever since making the ginger soup with chard at 101 Cookbooks I've been really inspired to make some more of Heidi's recent recipes. Her Broccoli Cheddar Soup called out to me. Though I may have made some adjustments, mostly out of laziness or a missed ingredient when grocery shopping, this recipe turned out amazingly.
With a mild broccoli taste, smooth cheddar and mustardy kick both in the soup and in the croutons, I wanted to eat my way through the entire pot. I highly recommend giving this one a try when you have friends to eat it with you. As Heidi points out, re-heated Broccoli soup is much less appetizing. The homemade croutons baked with mustard are an idea I simply love and can't wait to try again in the future.
See the recipe at 101 Cookbooks, and definitely give this one a try.
Also, I am now the proud owner of a kitchen aid mixer (finally!), so prepare to see a lot more baking from me in the near future. Thanks Mom!
