Broccoli Cheese Soup and other creamy soups are generally loaded with calories, fat, saturated fat, and sodium. For a healthier soup, this made-over recipe replaces the higher-calorie ingredients and uses skim milk, low-fat cheese, less butter, and reduced-sodium broth. Enjoy this soup, guilt-free!
Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat, add onion and cook until tender. Add flour; stir until blended. Gradually stir in broth. Heat until slightly thickened. Add milk, broccoli and potatoes.
Cook over low heat about 15 minutes or until broccoli and potatoes are tender. Stir in seasonings and cheese (reserving some cheese for the garnish, if desired).
Serve with a sandwich, or a salad and a crusty roll, if desired.
