Recipe Ingredients for Broccoli, White Bean and Cheddar Soup

14 ounce reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 cup water
1 pound broccoli, trimmed and chopped (about 6 cups)
14 ounce cannellini beans, rinsed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 cup extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

Recipe Directions for Broccoli, White Bean and Cheddar Soup

  1. Bring broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add broccoli, cover and continue cooking until tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in beans, salt and pepper and continue cooking until the beans are heated through, about 1 minute.

  2. Transfer half the mixture to a blender with half the cheese and puree. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with the remaining broccoli mixture and cheese. Serve warm.

  3. To further reduce fat, you can use low fat cheddar. It tastes just as good!
