1. Light & Tasty Broccoli Cheddar Soup


3 cups unsalted vegetable stock

4 cups broccoli florets, coarsely chopped

1 cup diced yellow onion

1 chopped carrot

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 + 1/8 cup half-and-half

4 ounces shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese, divided

1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves (optional, garnish)


Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Turn off the heat. Blend the soup until it’s creamy using either a hand blender or regular blender. Blend until smooth. Return soup to pan. Stir in 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup half-and-half and 2 ounces cheese. Top evenly with remaining 1 tbsp cheese per bowl and parsley.
