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 changed this recipe a bit. Sautéed the broccoli first in Olive and Butter. Needed more fat because I'm on Atkins. Then removed from pot. In pot whisked in Tofutti Sour Cream, and Heavy Cream. Added salt, pepper, garlic powder and nutmeg. Put on simmer and then whisked in Fancy shredded. Mozzarella and Chedder Cheese until smooth. Then added the sautéed broccoli to the pot with a cup of vegetable broth. Simmered another 10 -15 min on very low. Absolutely delicious.

I know this makes 8 servings, but how big are the servings?...1 cup - more, less???

If this can be made with fat free cream cheese and reduced fat cheddar cheese and still be palatable I would try. Sounds like a great recipe if you don't have to worry about fat intake.
It is the best and think I am addicted, fried some bacon and onions before hand, cooked the soup then pureed it with blender and added the bacon, garlic and onions ....I just want to know what the serving size is please !!

Very tasty and filling. I cooked frozen broccoli crowns, drained, and chopped them myself. This cut down on the extra water.

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!!

This is easy, quick, and filling. It is also great because it freezes really well.
soup was really liquidy and didn't have that great of taste.

I loved this soup. I added some salt and lots of pepper. I think fresh broccoli would taste good too.
