What could be better on a cold winter night than a hearty bowl of creamy (healthy) soup? Well, maybe a huge chocolate cake that was all mine! Kidding! (Make that sort of kidding, I mean I AM pregnant ;)) So, besides a gigantic chocolate treat, there aren’t too many other things that could make for such a perfect meal on a freezing cold night.

I first made this soup a few years ago when we were living in Atlanta. I figured I would try to put my own (much healthier and even better tasting) spin on everyone’s favorite Broccoli Cheddar Soup from Panera Bread. I mean who doesn’t love a huge bowl of thick, creamy broccoli soup?Pancakes and Broccoli Cheddar-105-Edit

Over the years, I have experimented and tested quite a few variations of a healthy cream of broccoli soup. One time I added spinach, cheddar and parmesan right to the soup and then pureed it. The verdict, tasty, but not it. I wondered if it was worth sautéing the broccoli stalks and trees separately? No, too much work and an unnecessary step. A few times I pureed half of the soup, and left the other half chunky. I thought that having some texture might be a great addition. The verdict, we preferred it creamy. It seems that with this soup, it just worked better to puree it all. So, now you can see a few of the changes that this recipe has gone through in order to become a winner.

This Low-Fat Cream of Broccoli Soup is fairly simple and easy to make! It is filled with vitamins and nutrients AND tastes amazing! This soup also reheats incredibly well, and makes for great leftovers. There is just something so satisfying about creating a great meal one night, and enjoying it again the next. Loved by adults and kids, this creamy soup has quickly become a new favorite around here.
