Super Simple Broccoli Cheddar Soup

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.

  1. I have a bag of frozen broccoli florets. Can these be used? Also, you just say a package of shredded cheese. Is that 8oz, 10ozs, 12ozs ??

    1. Hi Donna! Great questions. The cheese we used was 8 oz and you can use frozen broccoli, as long as they are small florets! The cheese gets stuck and clumpy with bigger florets.
