Baked Potato Soup w/ Broccoli & Cheddar

  • 1 baked russet potato
  • 1 1/2 C low-fat milk
  • 1 C chopped broccoli, cooked or frozen
  • 1/4 C shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

1. Cut the potatoes into chunks and combine them with the milk in a blender. Process the mixture until smooth. Add the broccoli and process, pulsing the motor on and off, until the broccoli is coarsely pureed. You should still be able to see tiny broccoli buds.
2. Transfer the mixture to a heavy 2quart saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove the soup from the heat, then stir in the Cheddar, salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Robyn's notes: this looked really nasty because it was kept in fridge overnight and reheated. So it had turned a murky purplish black colour across the top. But once stirred up that was no longer visible and he said it was really good, "make again" good. So I guess it must've been! For myself, I made Potato and Cheddar Soup, see August 16th entry, although this time I left out the onion. Only 3 stars because I have to make a whole separate version for myself, which is time-consuming.

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
