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.

Karl’s Broccoli and Cheese Empanada
I am making “pigs in a blanket” for Sundays dinner, but man does not live on bread and meat alone—as much as some might try.

I decided that broccoli was a good choice, with maybe some onion and a little potato and some sharp cheddar to give it some bite.
