Simple Broccoli Soup with Cheddar Croutons

Standard

Found out that my little monster (aka my daughter) has a love for soups (and also hates her greens, argh), so decided to experiment cooking vegetable soups to make her drink up her vitamins and minerals. This one looks good and will try it soon.
