As of recent, we’ve been trying to stick to a low carb diet. It hasn’t been an easy adjustment, but with the new year, we’re dieting as part of our resolution.
I’ve done a low carb diet before and had a lot of success, so we’ve decided to go that route. This broccoli cheddar soup is perfect for lunch when on a low carb diet. If you’re not on a low carb diet, do not shy away from this recipe. It’s full of so much flavor and is creamy and delicious. Without the use of corn starch or flour, it keeps it a little healthier.
This recipe is super simple. There’s only seven ingredients and only takes about 25 minutes to put together. It’s perfect for a cold winter day. Here in Chicago, it’s currently -10 degrees, so this recipe was perfect.
Let’s get started!
