Broccoli Cheese Soup

cheesy broccoli soup

Cheesy soup is perfect on a rainy day, and the greens make it healthy!

Who ordered this cold, dreary weather for the DC area? It’s April. I accept the rain. But I don’t accept the need to wear a heavy winter coat! Even Happy Dawg refused to spend any time outside this morning. Brrrr. On the bright side, I do believe hearty cheese soups were put on this Earth for exactly these kinds of weather situations. And yesterday, when this weather came in, I happened to have some hearty cheese soup ingredients on hand.


Great Kohlrabi recipe

pan fried chicken with kohlrabi puree

Kohlrabi puree is earthy and rich, pairing nicely with a pan friend chicken breast with portabella mushrooms.

What is kohlrabi? Until I few weeks ago, I didn’t know the answer to that question. I just knew last fall we found seeds for it and planted it on our greenhouse. At the time, I didn’t stop to think about what I’d do with it when it was ready to harvest.

Fast forward a few months. The kohlrabi is exploding. This stuff is huge. Yet Rick and I still aren’t sure when we’re supposed to harvest it and what parts of it we’re supposed to eat. But has that ever stopped me? Nope.
