I have a craving and need a good recipe!

Okay so I've been craving broccoli cheese soup for like 3 days straight with grilled cheese. I don't know why, I guess because we had a brief cold snap here of fall-like weather and its a comfort food and I haven't had any in at least a year. Anyways, I used to like Chili's version of the soup but the stopped making it. I don't eat meat, so I need a recipe that doesn't have chicken stock or broth in it. It doesn't matter if its low fat or anything, I just need a really good soup!!!

  • I don't have a recipe for you, but any recipe that calls for broth or stock you can substitute vegetable broth/stock, it's right there next to the chicken broth.

  • If you have a recipe just swap the chicken stock for vegtable stock.

  • Stir in hot pepper sauce (if using). Add broccoli and cook, stirring, until heated through.

    Ladle into heated bowls and garnish with croutons.

    CHEESY CROUTONS
    Makes 18 croutons (enough to garnish 6 to 9 servings)

    18 baguette slices (1/2 inch)
    Olive oil
    1/2 cup shredded or grated cheese (any type or mix)
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Preheat broiler, with rack placed 4 inches from heat. Brush both sides of baguette slices lightly with oil and place on baking sheet. Broil, turning once, until toasted on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Sprinkle with cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Broil until cheese is just melted, about 1 minute. Let cool slightly on sheet on a wire rack and use warm.
