Broccoli, Potato and Cheese Soup

we have enough broccoli in our garden to last a life time! i didnt want it to go to waste, so i used it in this wonderful soup! it was hearty and filling. my kids ate it! its cheap. it was so fast and easy to make!

2 Cups chopped onion
2 Tlbs olive oil
2 1/2 lbs peeled and cubed potatoes
5 Cups water
4 Cubes chicken bullion
3 Cups fresh broccoli, cooked and drained
dash of garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
3 Cups cheddar cheese

in a large pot, saute onion in butter.
add potatoes, water and bullion cubes.
bring to boil and then reduce heat to med. and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 min.
cook broccoli and add to soup.
in a blender or food processor, puree half of the soup and return to pot.
season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
add cheese and heat soup through until cheese is melted.
serve warm.
goes well with homemade biscuits.

stay warm!
