The Back Story

The whole of this week, it had been raining a lot, stepped out this morning into the cool & crispy refreshing air & realized the “Seasons are a changin’ !” Fall is here, early, the leaf edges were beginning to get laced with color, yet the cold front is definitely sweeping in thru’ the city like a gentle quiet snake.

You know you are ready for some warm soup, when your insides do an involuntary shiver, indicating that Fall is here…..”Oh! but what about healthy ?” asks your inner voice”Off course, Broccoli is healthy!” you reply.”Cheese ??? REALLY ???” nudges the inner voice again, you blissfully ignore it, by muttering to yourself while you add the dollop of butter in.

The first time, I ever tasted this soup was in TGIF when after a good day of fun & frolic in the Disney World, during our vacation, we returned to our room hungry & tired.The closest place was this restaurant, which served this egg free soup. After I explained to the waiter my severe allergy for eggs he brought me this “egg free” soup.He promised me that once I taste his Broccoli cheese soup from the allergy free menu, he handed me, I would be a fan for life.

True to the word, I settled myself with a bowl of steaming hot delicious “egg free” Broccoli Cheddar soup while the others watched the game.Since then, it’s been my favorite vegetarian soup, though only recently, I got to learn about the traditional recipe from a friend.
