How to make this easy, healthy recipe: Broccoli cheese soup

Some people may find broccoli hard to digest (my husband is among them)! But almost anything affects my husband stomach. He is always chewing TUMS or gas relief tablets!!  Luckily it is not hard to digest for me, nor the kids!

Ingredients for this easy, healthy recipe

Affiliate links included. Thanks for the support.

  • 1 ½ cup of broccoli (you just want to make sure you have more broccoli than broth so it’s not too liquidy)
  • 2 ½ cup of chicken broth! You can replace it with vegetable stock if you prefer.
  • 1 cup of milk
  • ½ cup of shredded cheese

How to make it

Watch the video tutorial and read the instructions below:

  • In a large pot, add the broth or stock
  • Add the broccoli cut in chunks
  • Cover and bring to boil
  • Reduce the heat and let simmer until broccoli is tender
  • In a food processor, add the mixture and blend to pure
  • If your blender allows it, you can do this in one step, otherwise, divide the mixture and do it in two parts
  • Transfer the cream of broccoli into a clean pan
  • Add cheese! Leave some for decoration!
  • Add milk and heat! Do not bring to boil! Some people prefer cream: The taste is better with cream, but the calories are higher! You can replace the milk with a low-fat cream, but I couldn’t find any in my area.

That’s all it takes to create a delicious, easy healthy recipe that will warm you up on a cold winter’s night. Doesn’t it look so rich and creamy?

Some recipes call for salt and pepper, but I find that the stocks contain enough salt and pepper! Besides, I add enough cheese to cover for my salt needs! I have always watched my salt intake as my family has a history of cholesterol problems!

  3. I love broccoli soup and what I like best about this recipe is the small amount of cheese used. Even thou I live in Florida we still enjoy soup every now and then. Especially on cool rainy days like today.
