    We love this type of soup. The thicker and creamier the better. Probably quick and easy making it the way you do.

    I still have not tried to cook anything in my pressure cooker. It scares me. I have one that I bought for canning, so not sure how that would work.

    Just like cauliflower, broccoli tastes so lovely with cheese, especially cheddar! I think this is the perfect soup for a cold night. It’s a comfort food!
