    Broccoli Cheddar Soup - Comfy Belly

    A simple broccoli cheddar soup.

    I know this is not for everyone, but if you’re eating cheese, read on.

    I’ve cut out a lot of hard cheese from my diet over the years, mostly due to the fat content, and shifted to soft goat and sheep cheeses. They’re a bit more expensive, in general, but that means I buy less and finish what I have in the fridge. Goat cheese doesn’t last more than a day or two in my  hands anyway. And buying fresh goat cheese is the best way to enjoy the flavors because it does start to spoil after several days.

    For this soup, I’ve tested several types of cheddar and recipe testers have used mostly classic American cheddar with good results. My favorite cheddar for this recipe is a mild cheddar based on cow’s milk, however if you want to venture into goat territory, I would go with a sharp cheddar to mask the flavor of goat milk. Up to you though.

    For serving, I like adding some soft goat cheese or shredded cheddar on top of the served soup, or you can serve with crackers, toasted bread, toasted grill cheese croutons (from my SCD book), or a slice of flatbread (from my Coconut Flour Cookbook).

      I am pregnant and Broccoli Cheddar soup (And most other kinds of soup) are my craving. I have been searching for a Paleo/primal recipe that sounds as delicious as the (Panera Bread) broccoli cheddar I have been eating. Which I know is not paleo/primal but tell my craving that when it hits. I am doubling the recipe and trying this this weekend! Thank you so much!! (Doubling recipe so I may let my family eat the soup too. Otherwise it is all mine.)
