Cream of Broccoli Soup

I love making creamed soups, a few favorites are Broccoli Cheese and Potato SoupCream of Asparagus Soup and Cream of Zucchini Soup. It’s perfect for lunch with some bread on the side, or serve it for dinner with a sandwich.

Most creamed soups are loaded with cream or flour which make them high in fat and calories. To slim this cream of broccoli soup down I use the vegetables to thicken it, keeping it thick before I puree it, then add a little sour cream and cheddar. The results are rich, creamy and delicious, and so easy to make from scratch.
