Thick and creamy sharp cheddar and tender broccoli are a match made in Keto heaven. I doubt this soup needs any introduction. It will keep your Ketosis fires burning and it's a family favorite. Picky teen approved.
3cupsbroccoliChopped into small pieces. Use a food processor to make this bit go faster or use frozen chopped broccoli (fastest).
1cupheavy whipping cream* Almond milk works but it will not be as creamy.
3cupsshredded Cheddar cheese* Any kind you like. Sharp is our favorite.
4slicesbacon* Optional- chopped and cooked
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Add butter, broth, broccoli and spices. Bring to a boil; simmer until broccoli is tender, about 15 minutes.
Add heavy cream & Cheddar cheese gradually. DO NOT BOIL ONCE YOU ADD CHEESE AND CREAM. Just a low simmer is enough.Stir constantly, until completely melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If too thick add more cream. Too thin? Add more cheese.
Serve with optional toppings on the side. See post for ideas.
