Broccoli Cheddar Protein Soup
Our recipe is a slight alteration on CheatClean Cookbook’s Broccoli Cheddar Soup.
While the recipe does call for chicken stock, vegetable stock will work just as well. We would recommend avoiding any darker beef stocks though.
Speaking of vegetables, you can use whatever type of onion you like best, but a sweeter white or yellow onion tends to work best with creamy soups like this one. If you’re using an immersion blender, it could be helpful to make sure your onions are finely chopped before blending, but if you’re using a larger food processor, it’s not as important as the machine will blend them finely regardless.
When you add the cheese, feel free to let it sit in the hot liquid for a moment to melt a bit before processing. Also, if you feel that the protein powder is making the soup too thick, feel free to add in an extra splash or two of chicken stock, you just might want to heat it up first.
If you’d like to add a little extra veg to your soup, you can include both broccoli and carrots at the end before you’ve added the cheese garnish on top. You can also add an herbal garnish if you’d like or play with adding other spices into the mix to make the recipe your own.
