Our Broccoli Cheddar Soup comes together in just a few minutes, thanks to a little help from our blender. With all that creamy and cheesy goodness, you'd never guess that it's safe for your diabetes diet!
What You'll Need:
1 pound fresh broccoli (about 1 medium-sized head)
14 ounces low-sodium fat free chicken broth
2 tablespoons margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups skim milk
1 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
Clean the broccoli, then chop the florets and thinly slice the stems.
In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the broccoli and chicken broth; heat to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 7 minutes or until the broccoli is fork-tender. Transfer to a food processor or blender. Process until fairly smooth.
In the same saucepan, melt the margarine over medium heat; add the flour. Cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Add the milk and pepper; heat to a boil, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to medium and add the broccoli purée. Stir in the cheese; heat just until the cheese melts (do not boil), stirring constantly.
For a chunky broccoli and Cheddar soup, reserve 1 cup of the broccoli pieces and add them to the soup with the broccoli purée.
