I also enjoy making fun festive GREEN meals for my family on St. Patrick's Day! 
So this year my husband requested Broccoli Soup in bread bowls:)
I remember seeing this recipe over on Cooking On Clover Lane and thougth I would give it a shot!  I never made broccoli soup before because I thought it would be hard, but believe me this was very easy!!:)

1 box vegetable broth
1 c. water
1 sm. container half & half
4 oz. cheddar cheese (we added more cause we love cheese)
1/2 c. flour (I ended up adding about 1/4 more because it wasn't thickening up)
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper (or as my husband said "Honey grab the black powder" - Hahaha - sorry had to share)
4 c. fresh broccoli chopped

Bring to boil all ingredients except broccoli, reduce heat to low, add broccoli and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until broccoli is tender.  We served ours in bread bowls and sprinkled cheese over top:)
