Rich, pampering and creamy cheese and broccoli soup. Delicious and syn-free in the Slimming World plan when you use your Healthy Extra A.
I have to admit that it took me a lot of tries to make this soup perfect. Four tries later and I found that I just weren’t using enough cheese to get the right flavor. In general, you’re looking for a cheese broccoli soup so that it actually tastes like cheese, right? I also wanted to keep the recipe with just 1 of our healthy Extra-A servings per serving. I finally smashed it. I’m bringing you one of the best soups you will try this year. It’s like velvet in a bowl.
One of the things I love about making soups is that they are batch cook friendly. I love creating large servings that can be frozen and reheated for when I need a quick and easy meal. But this soup is also enough to feed the whole family for a hearty meal.

Want to grab a soup to work but don’t have access to a microwave?
My dad actually recommended this product after starting his weight loss journey. He’s obsessed with homemade soup (and may I add his soup maker ..) and he was dying to bring soup to work. His company is tight and wouldn’t do without a microwave, so he invested in this fantastic soup thermos bottle. It keeps food hot for up to 6 hours! Perfect for soup, porridge, curry etc.
IS THIS RECIPE SUITABLE FOR FREEZING AND HEATING?
Absolutely … let cool before storing in airtight containers. Place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for 2 months. Thaw before reheating.
Heat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes or stir on the hob until hot.
IS THIS RECIPE WORLD-FRIENDLY?
Absolutely…. The ingredients allow 3 servings. Each serving is worth 1 of your Healthy Extra allowances, which means it is syn-free.
I think I’m right when I say broccoli may not be for everyone. So why not try some of my other soup recipes?
