Rich and Decadent Cream of Broccoli Soup


This soup is a favorite in my house.  While most kids are not crazy about eating their broccoli I am quite sure this soup will be a winner.  Most times I can’t even get a second bowl before my kids have it clean gone.  It is very easy to make.  I am all about quick and easy to put together meals.  I taught my girls at an early age how to start cooking.  Soup was one of the first things we learned.  Getting your kids to help you in the kitchen will definitely make for some very good bonding time and make good memories along the way.  We laugh, we create, we stuff our faces, we have fun!  So…let’s get in the kitchen and whip  up a hot and yummy soup!

Things you will need:

1 lb. frozen organic broccoli

1   8 oz. package of organic cream cheese

4 Tablespoons of organic unsalted butter ( Organic Valley unsalted butter smells and tastes heavenly, hands down the best butter! )

3 cups of filtered water  Want to learn more about the only filter I will use? Click here.

8 0z. sour cream

2 tablespoons arrowroot starch

organic onion powder to taste ( this is a huge staple in my house ) I like to use about 2-3 tsp  🙂

Organic NO-SALT herbal seasoning ( this stuff is the bomb! )  It is a blend of 24 organic spices that make the flavor “POP”!  I like to use about 2 tsp sometimes more because these herbs are very good for you and taste so good in any soup.

Organic black pepper( pepper to taste )

REAL SALT (salt to taste)

Liquid stevia ( I use about 5-6 drops but you can experiment starting with 2 drops at a time to see what you prefer )   Did you know that a secret that some chefs use to make the flavor of their soup “POP” is to put in a little bit of sugar?  Well, we use the sugar free alternative and wow, it really enhances the flavor of the soup!

( OPTIONAL ) For extra” bells and whistles “,  you can add 1 cup grated cheese of your choice ( I like gouda) and 1/2 cup diced organic red bell pepper.

How To Make This Delicious Soup

  1. Get a medium to large soup kettle and put 1 lb. frozen broccoli in and cover with 4 cups of filtered water
  2. Put it on medium high heat to bring to gentle boil and cook broccoli till tender
  3. Add butter, sour cream, cream cheese and stir till melted, turn down heat to medium low and stir frequently so it doesn’t scorch.
  4. In a cup mix the arrowroot starch into about 1/4 cup COLD water and stir.  Everyone is different about how thick they like their soup, I would pour about half the mixture in the hot soup and let it thicken.  You can always add the rest of the mixture in the cup if you want to thicken it more.
  5. Add the onion powder, real salt, black pepper, NO SALT herbal seasoning, and the stevia.
  6. Take off burner and let sit till it cools down some
  7. Sit down , sip some soup, and ENJOY!
