Broccoli Cheese Soup



It is not hard to eat organically.  I made this soup because my dad is very picky but he will eat broccoli.  Typically I would stay away from soups with lots of cheese or cream.  I prefer broth soups that are nutrient dense and less caloric.  But I would rather he eat this than something from a can.


So here’s the deal.  Most people will complain that it is too expensive to eat organically.  Let me break this down for you


  1. Organic olive oil-left over from previous soup

  2. 1-carton of Organic Free range chicken broth $3.66 on sale ( if I find something like this, that I will use a lot, on sale I will buy multiple)

  3. Bag of frozen organic broccoli $2.50 (frozen is better than canned and you can keep it frozen until you make the soup)

  4. Organic onion $1.00

  5. Garlic-left over from previous soup

  6. Asiago Cheese-$3.99

  7. Organic Sour Cream-left over from previous soup


So total I spent $11.15 specifically for this soup.  We are able to have 6 meals so total that is $1.85 per meal.  Please don’t try to tell me that you can get food at McDonalds for less than this.  If you had to buy organic olive oil, garlic and sour cream you would add about $14 to the price which would bring it to about $4.20 per meal.  That is still less than a meal at McDonalds.


Here’s the recipe for this yummy soup. Onion and garlic are great winter foods as they help to kill bugs and boost the immune system.  Broccoli is great for the liver and hormonal health.  It helps detoxification so eat up!


  1. 1/2 onion

  2. 1 clove garlic

  3. 1 bag frozen broccoli

  4. 3 cups organic chicken stock

  5. 1/2 cup asiago cheese

  6. 2 tbls organic sour cream

  7. salt and pepper to taste


Directions


  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot with a thick bottom, at medium heat

  2. toss in garlic and onion and saute for about 5 mins

  3. Add broccoli and sauce for about 5 mins

  4. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil, turn down heat and cook for about 10-15 mins or until the veggies are tender

  5. Transfer half to a blender and pulse once or twice.  Then put that in a bowl

  6. Transfer the other half and repeat

  7. Return all to the pot and add cheese and sour cream.  Cook until cheese is melted

  8. Serve hot.
