Amazing Broccoli Cheese Soup With Ham

Total Time

I love to have this for lunch! So cheesy and creamy! This is an adapted cheese soup recipe of mine and is it ever delicious! I love cheesy potato soup but since I'm diabetic now, I can't have the carbs. This is a wonderful alternative and GREAT for diabetics! The only carbs are in the milk, and the little bit of flour! And it's so easy to throw together! I just steam the broccoli in the microwave, and then chop it, and the ham, while I wait on the soup to boil.

Ingredients Nutrition

  6. Stir until cheeses are melted and Serve!
  7. Yum!

I doubled the recipe and added more broccoli cuts than what was asked for. To me, it still needed more broccoli. Also, I didn't add any salt because I thought the ham added enough. Other than that I stuck to the recipe exactly as listed, and the taste was fabulous! I will definitely make this soup again!

Great recipe! I added about 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon jalapeño powder. (I dry jalapeño and habanero peppers in the oven when they start looking a little sad in the refrigerator. I then grind them in the food processor and keep the powder in a jar to add to recipes.)

Very good recipe! I added onions, 1/4 cup cream to the milk, and 2 tablespoons of cream cheese. Amazing recipe!
