Healthier Potato, Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

Autumn has set in & I was home with a sick tot all weekend- poor babe! We crafted, read, played & I was exhausted. No outside time makes me sad so we went out & splashed in some rain puddles a bit then came back in to this yummy dinner.

Healthier Potato, Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

  • 3-4 large potatoes, washed, peeled, cubed
  • 1 large, diced onion
  • 1 head of broccoli florets
  • milk (I used skim!)
  • 1-2 cups lowfat shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • chives, chopped & more shredded cheddar to top
Add the cubed potato, onion & broccoli to the pot & salt the veg. Fill the pot with water to just above the veg. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until all of the vegetables are very tender.Drain & return the veg to the pot. Using a potato masher, coarsely crush the veg. Add the cheddar cheese & enough milk to thin to desired thickness. Add S & P & top with more cheddar & chives.
