This soup has all the creaminess you expect from classic broccoli and cheese soup ,but so much less saturated fat and cholesterol. you can slightly increase amount of Cheddar to your liking.
Cooking Tip--One of the best ways to reheat this soup and keep it from being scorched is to use a Double-Boiler,if you don't have a Double-Boiler,place a stainless steel bowl over a pan of simmering water.In either case ,be sure the water in the bottom pan doesn't touch the top container
