My son-in-law is on a low starch diet, so it is a challenge to come up with recipes that fit his desires. I decided that a cream of broccoli soup would be the thing.

For this recipe I did my usual, one ingredient from this recipe, another ingredient from that recipe to make something new and different.
I am making Beef Bourguignon this Sunday and I was thinking about a vegetable side. I have done green beans to death and I am sure that my family would like something a little different.
