{Dairy Free, Gluten Free} Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe

Some days, I end up feeling like I’m in a meal time rut.  Just cooking the same things over and over, with little variety.  So because of that, I’m always on the hunt for new recipes.   Just recently, a health conscious friend of mine shared her {Dairy Free, Gluten Free} Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe.  She’s super healthy, offers classes at the local gym, and even teaches healthy eating workshops.  So I thought we’d give it a try.  Half the family was down with some sort of bug but the ones who were able to try it enjoyed it well enough.  I think I’d prefer real milk in it so I may switch out the coconut milk next time.  But all in all, if you’re looking for a healthy option, this wasn’t too bad.

  • These look great I gotta print these out.thank you

  • Lauryn R

    Honestly I do not think that I would like the coconut milk either! I also do not get where the cheese comes from if there is no cheese in it, lol, but I am also a big cheese lover. 🙂 I would definitely give it a try though, my son is lactose intolerant so it sounds like the perfect choice for him!

  • Barrie

    I love soup and this has a ton of veggies. This recipe is so easy and looks delish!

  • Rosie

    This does sound really good. I’ve been meaning to try nutritional yeast in some recipes, this is a good one to try!

  • Peggy Nunn

    This looks so good. I want to try and make it soon. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Amy D

  • denise low

    Thank you for sharing your soup recipe. It looks delicious and it also looks very creamy.

  • shannon fowler

    This sounds like such a great recipe! Soup sounds so good right now with it being cold.

  • ellen beck

    This sounds and looks good.Normally I am a cheese freak, but sometimes when youre sick, milks and such dont sit well. This would be a nice alternative for situations like that. I think too it would be good any time it is cold, and really good for you since it has a lot of vegetables.

  • sheila ressel

    I’ve been wanting a healthier version of broccoli cheese soup and this one sounds great. I will definitely be making this real soon.

  • gloria patterson

    Looks interesting but have to agree got to have some changes. I have never bought coconut milk so it would be the real milk.

  • Brandon Sparks

    This really looks so good. I am looking forward to making it. Thanks..

  • MeMe R

    Ummm can you make this for me? I am a week out from my infusion therapy (similar to chemo) for Lupus and now I have a horrid infection that is trying to turn to kidney failure. This looks so good…no joke! My husband is a hearty meat stew/soup eater and I am a veggie eater. I am planning to go to his delivery job with his today, just to ride along and distract myself and was thinking Panera broccoli cheese soup and sandwich but this looks better. I wish I had the energy to make it, but maybe I can sit and chop and will myself to get it done. Thanks for these recipes!!

  • Darcy Koch

    I too would use regular milk instead of coconut milk. I like both broccoli and cheese so I would like this. Simple enough recipe.
