  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli chopped
  • 1/4 cup onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3.5 oz cheddar cheese shredded


  • Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the broccoli, onions, and celery. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for about 8 minutes, until the broccoli is tender. Add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the chicken broth and heavy cream. Add the cheddar and stir until completely melted.
  • Simmer for 5-10 minutes on medium low heat. Serve.


To thicken the soup, if desired, mix 1/4 tsp xanthan gum in a small bowl with some hot water, until gummy. Add to soup and whisk to combine. You can also thicken the soup with 1 tsp of cornstarch mixed with cold water. It will add 2 grams of carbs to the total, which adds .5 grams to each serving.
