I'm between blog ideas, so today you get what I'm making for dinner. This is as close to a solid recipe as I make so, just try. Thanks to my friend, Lori, I had some great ideas to make this a whole lot healthier.
Cheesy Broccoli Soup With Ham
I chopped up a Vidalia onion and cooked it down in some olive oil. I added just a tiny bit of butter to get that butter flavor, but I'm thinking you could really leave it out and be OK. Next I added flax seed meal and almond flour to make the roux. Next add in a carton of organic chicken broth and half a box of unsweetened, unflavored almond milk. Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. I add lots of pepper. I let it simmer for a while. Then I added some left over ham--the not so healthy part--I cut it up small like bacon crumble size. I also put in one bag of chopped broccoli. I let it thaw out before I threw it in the soup. As it simmers I mush it up. I don't love big huge chunks of broccoli in my soup. I added about 2 1/2 cups of low fat sharp cheddar.
There you go. That simple. Soup for dinner.
