Cheesy Potato & Broccoli Soup

I am not a soup person, but my husband loves it. Yesterday in Bismarck when our high temp was -14 or so he decided he wanted soup for lunch–and for once I agreed!

We were initially going to doctor up a can of soup into something more filling, but then I decided to make something myself. I haven’t made homemade soup so this was a new one for me. I’m glad I decided to try! This recipe makes 2 servings. The original recipe can be found here.

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/8 cup flour (I used brown rice flour)
  • 2 small diced potatoes ( I used yellow potatoes)
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped broccoli, raw or thawed if frozen
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup skim milk (I used coconut milk)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • dash paprika
  • salt (if you use no salt chicken broth)
