This Broccoli Cheese Soup is AWESOME
Hubby AND kids all liked it.which is a major miracle in this house!
Since we have a large family, I double it and it turns out fine, no adjustments needed.
Broccoli Cheese Soup
3 cups fresh or frozen and thawed broccoli
4 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup water
2 pkgs chicken boullion (I use cubes, starting with 4 then adding to taste)
1 tsp. pepper
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
Chop and cook broccoli. If you'd like some chunks in the soup, set some aside or cook a little extra and set aside, Combine broccoli, cream cheese, heavy cream and 1/4 cup of water in food processor, blend all. Transfer mixture to a pan, add boullion, pepper and rest of water. Simmer over nedium heat. Add cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
Great soup for those on low carb diet....for those not, STILL a great soup, just add crackers or a nice bread on the side, and it's a nice meal for a cool day.
Doesn't take long to throw together either
