Remember several months ago when I made broccoli cheddar soup but forgot to take a photo? Well, your long wait is over - I made it again, this time with photographic evidence. Behold: Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Homemade Croutons!
Isn't that just beautiful? And it was delicious, too, of that I can assure you. We made the whole recipe and ate it all in one night. Ah well, totally worth it. Want to know how I made the croutons? It's pretty easy.
Yeah, that's right - I smashed up a loaf of stale bread with a hammer. You see, we had intended to make this soup a week or two ago, which is when we bought all the ingredients. Everything else held out for us, but the baguette was hard as a rock. But I am not one to eat soup without some sort of bread product, so I improvised. And it turned out pretty well - the croutons got nice and soft and soup-saturated in no time. So next time you've got a bread brick, consider bashing the crap out. It's pretty satisfying.
