Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Aftering purchasing ladels of broccoli cheese soup from various lunch places, I decided I would attempt a healthier version of a creamy broccoli cheese soup.
Adapted from Deceptively Delicious
  • 1/4 cup nonfat skim milk
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 3 wedges Laughing Cow Light Original cheese wedges
  • 2 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Add broccoli, chicken broth and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture resembles a thick paste but has not browned, 1 to 2 minutes.

Add the milk, cheese and cook, stirring every now and then, until the mixture begins to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the vegetable puree, cheddar and seasonings and stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
