5 star rating for this soup. I used more broccoli and just added stock/cream to my desired consistancy. And more cheese of course =)
I also used the wand mixer, gotta love one-pot dishes.

Mmmm... just made this. added a bit of salt and pepper to it, too. Love how easy it was and now I can get my carbs in with something besides salad and fried brussel sprouts!

Thanks!

Smile Thank you so much for this recipe...

This recipe saved me today. I just made it for dinner and it was absolutely wonderful. Especially for me. I got my tongue pierced on Sunday and have not been able to eat real food since. This soup was just perfect and yummy. I am also on atkins so I have survived the past 3 days on low carb protein shakes, low carb yogurt, low carb smoothies, and low carb ice cream. I really needed something of substance and something different. Was getting really bored. But I've lost 6 pounds!!! Well thanks again!!!

About how many carbs does this soup have? I have not made it yet but it sounds good. Does brocolli have carbs? Which ingredients do i need to look out for when checking for carbs?

Mmm... this was yummy! I'm not a big broccoli fan, but who can resist cheese soup? I threw in an ounce or two of cream cheese, for the heck of it.

Default BBC Soup

I made this on a whim today and it turned out marvelously.

Ingredients:

2 cups broccoli florets chopped
4 ounces cheddar cheese shredded
4 pints of Dean's Heavy Cream (Deans has no carbs)
6 slices precooked bacon (make sure it isn't cured with sugar I found some on Tuesday that did and had to throw it out)
one half cup of onions
white pepper
black pepper
salt
dash of paprika (for coloring)
2 tablespoons of butter

saute the onions in butter until tranluscent
add the broccoli and saute for another 3-4 minutes
pour in a half cup of cold water (keeps the cream from scalding when you first pour it in)
Immediately pour in the cream, stir and add white pepper, black pepper, salt and a dash of paprika. Drop in bits of the shredded cheddar cheese and allow them to melt before adding the next bit to avoid clumping. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. Stir often to avoid scorching. Serve with plain pork rinds as a substitute for crackers.

19 net carbs in the soup if you use 0 carb heavy cream. I seperated out 4 servings coming in at approx. 4 carbs each. I ate one and the other two are in the freezer for next week.

Opened a can of asparagus, took out 1/2 of the spears, mashed them with fork, put in sauce pan, added some butter, real cream, low carb milk, salt & pepper and a little cheddar cheese. cooked on low/med heat stirring till small bubbles. let cool, and now I will eat my asparagus soup.

I made this last night. The taste is great. The texture was a little weird for me. Next time i will only chop up the broccoli and not pure it. It kinda felt like a sandy texture. I like to bite into the peices. Thanx!

Default My version of broccoli cheese soup

I am a throw-it-together kind of gal, so I am guessing at the measurements. I made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS! Even the kids were asking for more

1 can chicken broth
16 oz shredded cheese (about 4 cups)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sour cream
1-2 cups broccoli flowerets

Heat broth and cheese on low heat until cheese is melted. Add heavy cream and sour cream, stirring frequently. Increase heat to medium low, until bubbles begin to form on the top of the soup. Add broccoli flowerets. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes, or until broccoli is tender. Check frequently to avoid boiling over. Makes about 6 servings.

I don't have the exact carb count on this, sorry. I lost my recipe software when I upgraded to a new computer.

Note that all heavy cream has carbs, approximately 6g carbs (lactose) per Cup or 8 Fluid Oz, so 0.375g per Tablespoon. So it's 12 to 15g carbs per Pint depending on American or Imperial/UK Pint...

It's 'technically' only zero grams carbs per serving if the Serving Size is small enough (e.g., a Tablespoon or 15mL) to have less than 0.5g carbs (e.g., 0.375g).

So you need to add between 12 and 15 grams carb to your recipe for the cream alone, depending on what size pint you have.
