Broccoli Soup

Broccoli Soup with Monkey Bread

This Broccoli Soup is rich, delicious and easy to make! It’s a family favorite on a lovely Autumn afternoon or cold Winter evening. I usually serve it with Monkey Bread and sometimes I even grill some chicken marinated in Worcesterchire Sauce to have as a main dish. The chicken compliments the soup so perfectly, we even dip our chicken in the soup!
