Sometimes you just need to be comforted with a big bowl of hot, creamy, cheesy broccoli soup but don’t want (or need) all of the fat and calories. I recently made a lower-fat version: Skinny Broccoli Cheddar Soup.

During our recent cross-country road trip, I noticed my clothes getting a little tighter about half-way through the trip. All of that eating and sitting while traveling was starting to take it’s toll on my
butt waistline! I started watching what (and how much) I ate and have lost a few pounds so far.
I want to be able to still enjoy the foods I love with a little compromise. I used lower-fat ingredients in this recipe, but one thing I did NOT do is use margarine instead of butter. That is not an option for me… I just used a little over half of the butter that my original recipe calls for. Guess what? I hardly noticed a difference overall!
So going low(er)-fat in this recipe bought me a few extra calories for sopping that soup up with a crunchy and soft french baguette… my all-time favorite way to enjoy Broccoli Cheddar Soup!Print
