cajun french onion broccoli jambalayaFebruary 4, 2013
this came out of a craving for broccoli cheese soup, french onion soup, and jambalaya. it’s all of them at the same time. easy to make vegetarian, too – just leave out the sausage and chicken, and replace with whatever veggies you have in the house that taste great in soup!
fry two onions in a soup pot.
add stock, or water and bouillon.
add a head of peeled roasted garlic, two bay leaves, and a hot chili pepper or two. (i added potatoes, too, since i have a surplus.)
boil together a half-hour or so until soup base tastes wonderful.
add cajun seasoning blend (make your own with thyme, oregano, paprika, cayenne, onion and garlic, salt and pepper,) cut-up raw chicken, chunked broccoli stems, and slices of andouille sausage.
cook about another half-hour.
add broccoli florets 3 – 5 minutes before soup is done.
top with a little cheddar.
highly recommended! hearty, rich, filling, and easy.
