One of my favorite parts of fall is making soup and this is my new favorite!
Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup
Come home to a warming bowlful of this filling, Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe from Erren's Kitchen. It's a thick and comforting vegetable soup that's as good for a meal as it is for a dinner party appetizer.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 stalk celery chopped
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 1/2 lbs broccoli florets cut into bite sized pieces
- 3 cups canned chicken stock
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 3 cups cheddar cheese grated
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Cook celery and onion in butter until softened. Stir in broccoli, and cover with stock. Simmer until broccoli is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
If you want your soup chunky, remove about a cup of broccoli with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Reduce heat, and stir in the garlic powder, paprika and cheese until melted. Using a stick blender, blend until smooth.
Stir in the broccoli that was removed earlier and serve.
To make the soup extra thick, before adding the cheese I ladle out stock until it just covers the broccoli.
