Broccoli Cheese Soup

If you are a girl, especially an Auburn girl then I have a feeling you love nothing better than a big bowl of Broccoli Cheese Soup-preferably from a bread bowl! Am I right? I think so!

I do miss those trips to McAlisters deli where we would all order the same thing, and somehow we did not gain an ounce from eating a creamy soup out of a bread bowl!

Times are different now and not only is there not a McAlisters near me but my best friends are spread out into 5 different states! So I decided to try my hand at some homemade broccoli cheese and of course I made it paleo. Again, I am not a "no dairy" stickler so if you are, this recipe is not for you! But for all my girls, I hope you like this one!

5 T. Butter
1/2 medium onion, minced
1/4 cup flax seed meal or almond flour
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken stock
2 heads fresh broccoli, shredded in food processor
3 small carrots, shredded in food processor
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 ounces grated sharp cheddar
Melt the butter and add in onions, saute until tender about 5 minutes.
Slowly add in flax seed meal or almond flour using a whisk to create the roux. Keep whisking for about 3 minutes then slowly whisk in your milk then your chicken stock, making sure there are no clumps.
Add in the broccoli and carrots. Cook over low heat for 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste, then your nutmeg.Over low heat add in your cheese and stir until well combined.Serve and enjoy!
