Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup

My family usually only likes crispy vegetables but Broccoli is probably one exception to that rule.  We love slightly steamed crispy broccoli, but also enjoy slowly cooked broccoli in this easy peasy broccoli cheese soup.  I, personally,  love soup but not everybody in my family share that passion, so I tend to cook soups with their favorite ingredients.  This easy broccoli cheese soup has three of their favorite ingredients: broccoli, cheese, and potatoes.   Naturally, it has become one of our family’s favorite soups.  It has also become one of my go-to soups whenever I want to make something that is easy, quick, and nutritious to feed my family,   I can whip up a pot of this delicious soup from start to finish for about 30 minutes, that is pretty cool, huh?  Let me show you how easy it is.
