Creamy Broccoli Soup THM-S


Tasty Tuesdays or THM (Trim Healthy Mama) Tuesdays?! :) Today's recipe is based on the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle but if you aren't following that eating plan you can still easily make this delicious soup for your family!


Here's the recipe:

Creamy Broccoli Soup

adapted with the help of Melissa Fournier

1 package frozen broccoli
3 c chicken broth
1 small onion
1/2 c chopped bacon
1 T butter
1-8oz cream cheese
1 c shredded cheese
1/4 t garlic salt
1/2 t pepper
1 t salt

Instructions:
Cook broccoli in the chicken broth until soft. 
In the mean time fry butter, onion and bacon in a skillet.
Once the broccoli is soft add the cream cheese to it and let it melt. Do not drain off the chicken broth. Add the onion and bacon and the remaining ingredients. Heat until the cheese is melted.
Enjoy!

This was one of my favorite meals with THM and is in my recipe book to make again :)

    1. This is a heavy S due to the bacon, cream and cheddar cheeses.

  12. OH MY! I made this for the first time tonight - subbed cauliflower for the broccoli, and added a cooked chicken breast, diced, for a little extra protein. It. Is. AMAZING! :) Thank you for the incredible recipe!

  14. I kept this in a crock pot for our family reunion. It worked perfectly! I made a double batch and it all went so quickly! Needless to say it will be making a repeat appearance at future family functions, as well as on my regular menu rotation ��
