    This is a little healthier version. I'm not sure who gave me the recipe, but it is quick and easy, and my nephew who is 5 will eat it.

    • 1 cup reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth

      Quick and easy! I made a half-batch (and still didn't have quite enough broccoli, so I added green beans for most of the rest and a small handful of corn) without the corn flakes topping, without baking. DH said it was a very tasty broccoli cheese soup! This made a super-fast homemade lunch! But what I like best is getting that fast casserole-y creaminess without a "cream of" soup!

      This turned out great. I omitted the chicken because I had another main dish and used this as a side. I also used Brocco-flower. Turned out wonderful. This recipe reminds me of those "quick" meal ideas on the back of soup cans, but this is all using ingredients we have from home. This turns out better than the "quick" method of just throwing a can of condensed soup mix in with some veggies, baking it, and calling that a meal! I will use this again, and this would be a great one to experiment with different veggies, and adapt to your family's taste! Thanks for posting!
