Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

I love broccoli and so do my kids (they call it eating trees LOL).

But I have never tried a broccoli soup - since in normally comprises of lots of cheese and cream and therefore really not 21 day fix approved.

But I adapted a recipe that I found so that it was "fix approved" and it was amazing - I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

 

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp butter or olive oil

  • 1 onion chopped

  • 2 cups of diced carrots

  • 3 cloves of diced onions

  • 1/4 cup of gluten free all purpose flour

  • 3 cups of gluten free reduced salt chicken or vegetable broth

  • 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk (or other type of milk)

  • 4 cups of chopped broccoli (1 medium head)

  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard (optional)

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 cups of freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese

 

Directions

Heat Butter/oil in large saucepan, add onion and saute till clear. Add carrots and saute for 2 more minutes. Stir in garlic and saute for a minute, then stir in flour.

Whisk in the stock until evenly combined. Stir in milk, broccoli, mustard, salt and pepper.

Bring to near boil and then let simmer (stirring occasionally) for 6-8 mins (until broccoli is cooked).


Stir in the grated cheese until completely melted.

NOTE: don't use pre-grated cheese as it doesn't melt as well

 

Serve immediately, and top with a little extra cheese

 

Enjoy!
