Low-Carb Broccoli Soup

My History with Broccoli Soup

Due to an unfortunate event when I was about 13 years old, I avoided broccoli soup for a long time. My dad made broccoli cheddar soup for dinner, and I kept finding little black “things” in my soup. Rather than eat the soup, I kept moving it around in my bowl inspecting the black things until I found one that had long legs… Ugh!!! By the time I made my “discovery”, my brother and my dad had already devoured their bowls of soup. My dad had not properly washed the broccoli while preparing the soup, and there were lots of little black bugs living in the florets of the broccoli. My whole family was thoroughly disgusted, and we threw away the uneaten soup. So, the moral of the story when using fresh broccoli is to wash your broccoli well!

A few years ago, I got the “bug” to try broccoli soup again. I have so many favorite recipes for other vegetable soups including potato soup, carrot soup, and cauliflower soup, and I wanted to give broccoli soup one more chance.
