Cream of Broccoli Soup + Giveaway

A few months ago while attending the Southeast Produce Conference I had the pleasure of meeting the folks from Eat Smart. This is a brand that I have turned to on a weekly basis for years now. Eat Smart’s pre-packaged fresh-cut vegetables are convenient for busy week nights, and I know I can always count on them. You can also find party trays and bagged salad kits by Eat Smart as well.

Now, let’s talk about this soup–it’s perfect to sip on whether its hot or room temperature. Heck, you could indeed slurp it up as a cold soup, too. All week my husband, Jon, has been “drinking” it on the go as an “appetizer” before his lunch. Just so you know. That’s the way he wanted me to market this soup. As a drink-as-you-go soup. Not a sit at a table with a hearty bowl of soup. This is “soup-er” easy to make and requires few ingredients. Of course, the star of this soup is a 12 oz bag of Eat Smart Broccoli Florets.

My friends at Eat Smart have been kind to give away 5 Eat Smart product coupons of Fresh Cut Vegetables to not one but TWO lucky readers. This is a $17.50 value full of veggie goodness. If you love veggies this is the giveaway for you! All you need to do is enter below via Rafflecopter!

    I too have enjoyed the products by Eat Smart. They are always fresh and very nutritious. More so than some of the other brands I’ve seen. I’m going to have to try out this soup. It looks divine!

    I’d make a broccoli/ cauliflower salad with raisins, red onion, a sweet slaw dressing, and pecans!

    I have always wanted to make broccoli soup at home (even though broccoli isn’t my favorite veggie- but its health benefits tempt me to!) This recipe sounds easy to do, should give this is a try!

    I know it sounds simple, but I’d probably make a good cole slaw – I love it, but I don’t own a food processor so going to the trouble of making it always discourages me!

    I’d definitely make this soup! I love broccoli soup and I love that this doesn’t have too much cream. 🙂

    Soup or stirfry. Or both!
