Skinny Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Skinny Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Hearty, family friendly and satisfying Broccoli Cheddar soup is a definite favorite in my family. Ready in less than 45 minutes it’s a fantastic dinner solution alongside a sandwich or a Panini. Classic comfort meals are the best but they’re even better made lighter and healthier. Being able to enjoy a favorite dish without the guilt while loading up on good nutrition is always at the top of my list.

I can proudly say that growing up I was not one of the children that hated broccoli. As a mom I am even more proud that my daughter is not a broccoli hater. On the contrary broccoli happens to be one of our favorite vegetables. Steamed, roasted, raw or in a soup we continue to devour it week after week. I honestly think my love for all vegetables is a result of my mom’s ability to cook them right. We ate all kinds of vegetables as kids and continue to do so now. Thanks mom.
