Every recipe has a story! Andie shared hers with us: “I’m a huge broccoli cheddar soup fan: the creamy mix of cheese and fresh veggies just gets me every time. But store-bought soup is usually packed with preservatives and low on nutrients — not exactly conducive to my healthy eating plan. So unwilling to give up one of my food favourites, I set out to make a delicious broccoli soup that cut the calories, yet retained the flavour. And let me tell you, the results surprised even me!” –Andie

What you need:

8 Cups fresh broccoli florets

1 Cup carrot (shredded)

2/3 Cup sweet onion (diced)

2/3 Cup light cheddar cheese (shredded)

2 Cups 2% milk (May substitute for almond, coconut or soy milk)

4 Cups low-sodium chicken stock

1.5 Tbsp. olive oil

Seasoning (To taste)

Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Servings: 8-10.)

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot on medium-high heat, and add onions to sauté; Cook until onions are soft. (Andie’s Tip: “To increase the flavour, you can add in your favourite seasoning; I love garlic & italian seasoning!”)

  2. Next, add your chicken stock and milk to the pot; Simmer for 3-5 minutes on medium-low, until milk becomes frothy.

  3. Then add the carrots and broccoli to pot, letting the soup simmer uncovered on medium-low heat for 15-20 minutes, or until broccoli becomes soft.

  4. When broccoli becomes soft, turn off the burner, and stir in cheese; Serve hot.

  5. Eat & enjoy!
