21 Day Fix Approved- Broccoli Cheese Soup


21 Day Fix Approved-  Broccoli Cheese Soup


To me a bowl of soup is just super satisfying and comforting anytime of the year, but especially on a cold winter day.   Eating steamed broccoli get boring, so I like to make up a pot of this soup and have it on hand!  Sometimes I add a blue container of cheddar cheese for that extra salty/ creamy goodness!  If you LOVE soup and are looking for another great, simple soup that works in the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan, try this Zucchini Cashew Soup!  Broccoli is also SO NUTRITIOUS for you!  There are so many benefits to adding broccoli to your meal plan more than once a week!  Check out this informative blog about this amazing green superfood....  42 Science- Backed Health Benefits of Broccoli .

Heat olive oil in a medium sized pot.
Add broccoli, onion, carrot, salt and pepper and saute until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes.

Simmer uncovered about 15 minutes. 
With an immersion blender, puree the soup.

1-1/2 cup is one green container on the 21 Day Fix meal plan.  I like to put one blue container of cheddar cheese on top of mine and mix it in for Cheddar Broccoli Soup.  :)
