SFH October Recipe – Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Home Care in Sacramento CA

Home-Care-in-Sacramento-CA

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 1/2 pounds broccoli, washed and drained (about 4 bunches)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 14 ounce cans fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups 1% milk
  • 3 cups shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cut broccoli into small pieces, discarding any overly thick bottom stems.
  2. Boil broccoli in a medium saucepan until just tender to retain nutrients. Immediately rinse with cold water, drain, and refrigerate.
  3. In a large saucepan, saute green onions for about two minutes in butter or until tender.
  4. Stir in chicken broth and slowly add flour, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Bring to a slow boil on medium high heat, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add broccoli pieces to the broth and puree mixture in an electric blender or food processor until smooth.
  6. Return soup to saucepan over low heat. Blend in milk and Swiss cheese and simmer gently until cheese melts but not until milk boils.
  7. Add nutmeg, grated pepper, or grated cheddar cheese to taste.

President at ApexCare
I first became aware of the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease ten years ago when my grandmother was diagnosed with this disease.I saw firsthand how critical it was to have a loving family or caregiver to ensure my grandmother’s safety and daily well-being.My grandmother was fortunate enough to have close family members who cared for her as her Alzheimer’s disease progressed.

Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves.Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families.With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.

Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking.Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years.I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients.I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
