Soup! Another soup recipe! I already bring a non bad cream of broccoli soup on the weblog here, but I honey broccoli (and cheese!) hence I’m ever upward for trying a novel recipe. And this recipe is the bomb! It’s the alone broccoli soup I’ve made that maintains its texture perfectly later freezing. I honey that it’s nonetheless creamy in addition to cheesy in addition to delicious, fifty-fifty later a calendar month inwards the freezer. This is 1 of my really favorite things to maintain inwards the freezer for an tardily dinner! I normally simply ladle it into pint or quart sized reusable containers (I similar the Ziploc Twist n’ Loc ones hence I know they’re truly closed) in addition to allow the soup cool inwards the refrigerator overnight, in addition to then freeze the adjacent day. When we’re laid to eat, I thaw it simply a picayune inwards the microwave on the defrost setting, in addition to and then estrus it the residuum of the agency on the stove. If I was improve at planning ahead, I would simply thaw it inwards the refrigerator overnight, since that’s past times far the easiest way. Fresh or from the freezer, this soup is awesome!
