Broccoli Cheddar Bean Soup

January 18, 2012

This recipe comes from EatingWell with only a few small tweaks. It’s surprisingly yummy and yet still a much healthier version of this comforting soup. The recipe makes 4-6 servings.

You will need:

  • 1 can (14 oz) reduced-sodium broth
  • 1 c water
  • 1 lb frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 can (14 oz) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t ground mustard
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1 c extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

Then you will…

  1. Bring broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add broccoli, cover and cook until cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  2. Stir in beans, salt, mustard and pepper. Cook until the beans are heated through, about 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer half the mixture to a blender with half the cheese and puree. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Repeat with the remaining broccoli mixture and cheese. Serve warm with some crusty bread.
