Cheesy Keto Broccoli Soup

Creamy, cheesy, and loaded with good4u broccoli, this soup is sure to please. It’s even keto and vegetarian friendly! The cassava flour helps create a thicker soup but it can be left out for a slightly thinner soup if desired.

4
4 tablespoons organic butter
1 large organic onion, chopped
4 large cloves organic garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cassava flour
2 cups organic chicken or vegetable broth
1 Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Whole Bay Leaf
1⁄2 teaspoon Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Real Salt
1⁄4 teaspoon Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Black Pepper, plus more for serving
2 (10-ounce) bags Natural Grocers Brand Organic Frozen Broccoli Florets
1 teaspoon organic white wine vinegar
1 cup organic heavy whipping cream
1 (8-ounce) block Natural Grocers Brand Organic Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 cup cooked and crumbled Natural Grocers Brand Hickory Smoked Uncured Bacon , optional for topping

1. Heat the butter in a large stock pot or soup pan over medium heat until the butter is melted and the foaming has subsided. Add the onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes, or until translucent. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for one minute. Add the cassava flour and cook, stirring frequently for another minute.

2. Add the broth, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and broccoli and increase heat to bring to a low boil. Reduce heat slightly to maintain a simmer and cook for 7 minutes. Add the cream and simmer 2-3 more minutes.

3. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the vinegar. Add the cheese a handful at a time, stirring to incorporate between each handful. Mash with a potato masher for a chunkier soup or use an immersion blender or blender for a smoother consistency. Note: If using a blender, only fill the blender halfway and remove the center cap of the lid and cover with a kitchen towel before blending; you may need to do this in batches.

4. Taste the soup and add salt, pepper, and/or vinegar to taste. Serve topped with the crumbled bacon.
