Broccoli Parmiggiano Soup

Simple ingredients with no fuss makes this healthy recipe a breeze in the kitchen.
By Liza Puglia

Something about broccoli and cheese soup reminds me of my childhood.  It was loaded with cheddar cheese and cream with a fluffy biscuit served on the side.

This is my adult version.  It also happens to be very low in calories as well as light on the pocketbook. Double bonus.

Most people think it’s made with cream because of the texture but rest assured that the only dairy in this recipe is a bit of high quality parmesan cheese.

If you’d like to make the soup thicker add a cooked potato before pureeing.

  • The lemon juice made the soup a bit too sour for my liking. I’d recommend less stock/water and omit the lemon. 3.8 stars :)
