Broccoli Cauliflower and Cheese Soup is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Soup Swappers. We post monthly on the third Saturday with recipes for soups following select themes. For this month, we are doing soups, stews and chowders that have tons of vegetables. Your mother would be proud!

Broccoli Cauliflower and Cheese Soup

For my soup, I chose to use one of the broccoli cauliflower mixes from the market (sold in bags) along with some ham from extra lunchmeat, and a block of white cheddar cheese.

I think this goes perfectly for a soup and sandwich lunch, especially if you have some ham sandwiches. Or maybe a grilled ham and cheese. We are getting later into winter but the snow is going to be heavier than ever. So stay warm with delicious food!
