Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup

A great low carb broccoli cheese soup that will definitely become a favorite.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat the chicken broth in a pot.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of butter (optional), heavy cream and cheddar cheese. Place in microwave for 30 second intervals to soften. Stir after each 30 seconds.
  3. When broth is hot, stir in frozen broccoli and let soup heat up again.
  4. When soup is heated, pour the cream cheese mixture into the pot with the broccoli and chicken broth.
  5. Stir continuously to melt the cheeses into the broth.
  6. When soup is hot again, turn off the burner, and put half of the broccoli and 1/4 cup of broth into a blender and puree. (this will thicken the soup and make it creamy).
  7. Pour puree back into pot and stir well.
  8. Serve hot and garnish with cheese if you'd like.

I did not like the way the cheese did not melt. It was in clumps. The taste was good. I also added some ham.

Definitely needed garlic, salt and pepper. I melted all the cheese with butter in a double broiler and it turned out fantastic. TWO THUMBS UP!!
This is the yummiest. I'm eating it right now. Thanks for sharing.

Delicious. I make it with fresh broccoli and it comes out wonderfully.
I loved this soup. I added some salt and lots of pepper. I think fresh broccoli would taste good too.

This is easy, quick, and filling. It is also great because it freezes really well.
I tweeked this somewhat, I didnt have the canned broth on hand, used bullion cubes instead. I also used frozen broc/caulif mix. It was a bit on the thin side but had wonderful flavor!!
