Recipe by Sissylu

One of my favorite soups to make! This recipe took top prize in it's category at our local rice festival for our state. Delicious served with hot bread sticks too!

I thought this soup was fantastic. Unfortunately I am watching calories and couldn't quite bring myself to put the whole amount of cheese in. Just used about 2/3. Probably could have gotten by with half. I used fresh broccoli and steamed just a bit. I had leftover brown rice, which is why I tried this. I will make this again when I can indulge without so much guilt!!!
