It is cold out and we had half of Broccoflower Archer (made with broccoli) and a chicken breast left from last night so what to do but make soup. While I used what was left from Broccoflower Archer ***you could substitute 1/2 pound broccoli and 1 to 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar.***

Oh my goodness, yum yum. I love broccoli and all of the great things in this warming and comforting soup. I enjoyed it last evening for dinner with fresh hot biscuits. It not hard to make and uses things that I usually have on hand. I might add that this is a bright point of feel good enjoyment in this season of wonderful but rich indulgences. Thanks very much Deb.
