One of my underemployment hobbies has been experimenting with cooking things — mostly soups, because they’re delicious and surprisingly easy and I like anything I can eat with crackers.
Here is yesterday’s soup, a broccoli spinach soup adapted from this recipe.
Oh, with this big change: I kinda hate oregano and red chili, and didn’t have any thyme handy. So instead of those spices I substituted a teaspoon of dried dill, which paired really well with the mustard. Love dill.
The recipe also doesn’t tell you to garnish with leftover cheese. But c’mon.
Just had a second bowl for lunch, and it was delicious. Soups! I highly recommend.
