Default Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup

I've gone mostly low carb and gluten free, I've had a hankering for broccoli soup and this looks like it just might fit the need!


Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup:
  • 2 T. butter
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 8oz. cream cheese (I use organic)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (not ultra-pasteurized!)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 bunches of fresh broccoli, chopped
Heat broth and broccoli until broccoli is tender. Mix cream cheese, heavy cream, shredded cheese and butter in another pan and stir often. When broccoli is tender, put half in a blender and puree (this makes it a little thicker). When the other pan is melted, add to broth and broccoli. Garnish with cheese.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
