blue cheese broccoli soup

“What’s for lunch?” 

blue cheese broccoli soup

On Saturday we had some friends over to watch the hockey game.  My hubs made his famous deep fried BBQ chicken wings and I whipped up a quick blue cheese dip to accompany them.

Today, I felt like having soup for lunch but none of the cans in the pantry seemed appealing.  I opened the fridge and wondered what I was going to do with the leftover blue cheese dip, when I suddenly had an idea: SOUP!  It turned out to be real yummy and a small bowl is super filling.  Makes you wonder what other dips would make good soups!?

2 cups of blue cheese dip
2 cups of chicken broth
4 cups of broccoli
1 cloves of garlic chopped
A dash of pepper (freshly crushed three colour peppercorn) and salt.
Water

Pour dip, broth, broccoli, garlic, salt and pepper and add the water just so the broccoli is almost covered (about 1 to 2 cups).  Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.  With an immersion blender emulsify  until broccoli is smooth and blended. Enjoy!
