  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 16 ounces frozen chopped broccoli or 1 head fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 14 ounces chicken bone broth
  • 1 pound cheddar cheese cubed or shredded
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon Xanthan Gum
  • 1 cup water


  • In a large stockpot or dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat. Add chopped yellow onion and cook in butter until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in broccoli and pour in the chicken bone broth.
  • Simmer until broccoli is tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Reduce heat, and stir in cheddar cheese until melted.
  • Mix in heavy cream and garlic powder.
  • In a small bowl, whisk Xanthan Gum into water until completely dissolved.
  • Stir into soup; cook, stirring continuously, until thick.
  • I like to blitz this in a blender or with an immersion blender to make it super smooth and creamy, but that's optional.
  • Serve with fresh broccoli florets and some shredded cheese on top!
