The weather outside is frightful, but your diet doesn’t have to be. Soup is a great healthy way to fill up without bulking up – on calories that is. The pot is where it’s hot, so check out these 10 recipes and get ready to healthify your favorite soups this season.
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves (optional, garnish)
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Turn off the heat. Blend the soup until it’s creamy using either a hand blender or regular blender. Blend until smooth. Return soup to pan. Stir in 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup half-and-half and 2 ounces cheese. Top evenly with remaining 1 tbsp cheese per bowl and parsley.
