Cream of Broccoli Gorgonzola Soup

Cliff, Kelly, and I are big lovers of broccoli. Much like brussel sprouts I think that broccoli has a bad reputation. Parents will often say: you can eat that cookie if you eat your broccoli. But, why not cook broccoli in a way that people actually want to eat it. We love roasted broccoli with a little olive oil and garlic. When I cook it for Cliff and I made a ton of it. And we eat every last bite. It seriously tastes good! Like we get excited to eat it. Weird, right?

When Cliff and I were in Mexico we had broccoli chowder soup with gorgonzola. It was amazing!! Each bowl came with a little dollop of something in the middle with a crouton stuck in it. We ordered this same soup 3 different nights and every night I would wonder what that dollop was. The only thing I could think of was that it was a little scoop of mashed potatoes. Which, once stirred would thicken the soup. When we got home I knew I wanted to recreate that soup. I searched for a basic cream of broccoli soup. When I found this one on Food Network I knew it would be perfect because it called for potato!  We pretty much stuck to the recipe but stirred in a generous amount of gorgonzola which I think really makes the soup. If you think you hate gorgonzola or blue cheese I encourage you to give it another try. Gorgonzola is a very tasty cheese! We loved this soup and it was super easy to make.
