Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup


Serves: 6 as a main dish

Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Difficulty: Easy

Comments: This soup is low in calories and fat, and my kids like it! I use half cauliflower and half broccoli for a slightly milder flavor, but you can use all broccoli if desired. I serve the kid’s their soup with some garlic bread, on mine I just sprinkle a few fat free croutons on top.

Ingredients:

3 carrots, chopped
1/2 onion, medium, chopped
1 pound cauliflower, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cups vegetable broth, reduced sodium
2 cups milk, 2% fat
1 1/2 cups cheese, cheddar, low fat, shredded
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
2 teaspoons garlic, minced

Preparation: Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add oil and chopped onions and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add chopped carrots and garlic and stir. Cook for 2 more minutes. Add cauliflower and broth and cook over medium head for about 5 minutes. Add broccoli and cook for about 5 minutes until broccoli is soft. Place remaining broth in a blender and add the broccoli soup a cup at a time to the blender and blend well. Return blended soup back to the pot. Add milk and heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide among six bowls and top with shredded cheese. Serve with toasted baguette slices, some crusty bread or rolls.
