Three Cheese Broccoli Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 20 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Optional: xanthan gum

Instructions:

In a large pot, brown chopped onion and minced garlic in butter. Add broccoli, chicken broth, and spices. Bring broth to boil, then reduce heat and simmer until the broccoli is done. You will be able to insert a fork in a piece of broccoli with ease. In a small bowl whisk together softened cream cheese and cream until smooth. Add cream mixture, cheddar cheese, and parmesan cheese to the broth, and stir constantly until combined. Serve as is or try the following variations. For a thicker soup, add xanthan gum or puree the soup in a blender and reheat before serving. (WARNING: DO NOT PUREE SOUP WHILE HOT. IT WILL EXPLODE.)
