5 Minute Cream of Broccoli Soup for One

Home alone? Don't feel like cooking?
This one is great for college students, teenagers, or anyone who is dining alone. 

Here is an easy mug of soup. 

1 c frozen organic broccoli
2/3 c organic chicken broth or use a bouillon powder and some water 
1/4 c organic Milk 
Handful of Cheddar cheese 

In a 16 oz mug:
Heat broccoli and broth  in microwave for two minutes. 
Pour into blender and add milk and cheese. 
Blend until partially or completely smooth. 
It will be a good eating temperature or you can heat it up if you like it hotter. 

This is delicious and simple and nutritious. 
If you're vegan you can use almond or coconut milk, and vegetable broth.
