Low Carb Broccoli Cheese Soup

Now that the Comicon is over, it’s time (especially for Tashi) to go back to his (ketogenic) diet.  I was too tired from all the walking and I didn’t have the time to fix us food as I originally planned so he wasn’t able to stick to his diet for two days.  To make up for those days, I made him cheesy broccoli soup with herbed parmesan crisps for tonight’s dinner. Very easy to make and delicious too!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional – bacon bits

Instructions:

Heat broth and broccoli until broccoli is tender. Mash with a potato masher to break up the broccoli, or transfer to a blender and puree.

In another pan, melt butter/heat coconut oil. Add and brown minced garlic and onion. Add mashed broccoli. Stir well and let simmer  for about 2-3 minutes then add heavy cream and shredded cheese.

Garnish with more cheese. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

Creamy, delicious, and very filling. Enjoy!IMG_8095[1]
