Are you cold yet?
Make some soup! And not just any soup but Healthy Broccoli Soup:
No heavy cream, flour or butter.
In 30 minutes. Kids will love it!
Healthy Broccoli Cheese Soup is easy, cheesy, creamy with lots of vegetables. Make copycat broccoli cheddar soup at home without heavy cream or flour in 30 minutes.
Creamy healthy soups like cauliflower soup and butternut squash soup are our favourites when it’s cold and dark outside.
Once blended this soup looks at tastes just like any fast food joint broccoli cheddar soup. Just so much healthier and better for you! Not that I’m against flour, butter, cheese and heavy cream. But the fact that we can replace them with 8 cups of vegetables is mind blowing to me.
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 5 cups butternut squash cubed
- 3 cups 2 large potatoes, cubed
- 4 cups any stock low sodium
- 3 cups any milk I used unsweetened almond
- 5 cups 1 lb broccoli, coarsely chopped
- 1 1/4 tsp salt
- 5 oz sharp cheese shredded
Preheat large heavy bottom pot or dutch oven on medium heat and melt butter. Add garlic and onion, cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add butternut squash, potatoes, stock and milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low-medium, cover and cook for 7 minutes.
Add broccoli and salt, bring to a boil, cover and cook for 4 more minutes. Turn off heat.
If you like chunky soup (I do), remove broccoli into a bowl with a slotted spoon. Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth and silky. Return broccoli and add 4 oz of cheese; stir until cheese has melted. Serve hot sprinkled with remaining cheese.
