Description

A light, healthy, cheesy, creamy soup made with broccoli and broccoli Romanesco (which is a bright green vegetable that’s kind of a cross between broccoli and cauliflower) florets. Only 106 calories a bowl!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • ½ cups Onion, Diced
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth
  • 3 cups Broccoli Romanesco Florets
  • 2 cups Broccoli Florets
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • ½ cups Cheddar Cheese, Shredded (I Used Trader Joe's Lite 3 Cheese Mix)

Preparation

In a large pot over medium-low heat, add butter and onion and cook until onion is slightly tender. Add chicken broth, broccoli Romanesco florets, broccoli florets and pepper. Cook until broccoli is fork tender, about 15 minutes. With a hand immersion blender process the soup until smooth. Stir in coconut milk and cook until soup is hot. Stir in cheese until melted. Pour into bowls and serve.

Loved the flavor, but I think the consistency was a little thin. I think I’ll use less broth next time. I added some turkey ham for my carnivorous boyfriend… Thanks for sharing! P.S. Sadly, no Romanesco at Wegmans, but the soup tasted fine with just broccoli.
