Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli-Cheese Soup (adapted from Cooking Light September 2013)


3 cups unsalted vegetable broth
1 3/4 cups broccoli florets, coarsely chopped (about 8 ounces)
1 cup diced yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped carrot
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup half-and-half
4 ounces shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves


Combine first 6 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. 

Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender. 

Pour soup into a blender.  Blend until smooth. 

Return soup to pan. Stir in half-and-half and 2 ounces cheese. 

Top evenly with remaining cheese and parsley.
