Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 cups unsalted chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 6-1/4 cups broccoli florets, chopped
  • Large bowl of ice water
  • 4 scoops Quest® Multi-Purpose Mix Protein Powder
  • 1-1/2 cups reduced-fat cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. In a small pot, heat coconut oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute for 3 minutes or until slightly caramelized. Add chicken broth and increase heat to boil.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover for 15 minutes or until broth has evaporated to half. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat.
  3. Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil. Add broccoli. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain broccoli and place in ice bath for 2 minutes. Add 3/4 of the broccoli to a blender.
  4. Add chicken broth mixture to blender. Process for 10 seconds until completely combined. To the blender’s broth mixture, add 1 scoop of the Quest Protein Powder, 1 cup of cheese and non-fat plain Greek yogurt.
  5. Blend until smooth, then add the remaining 3 scoops Quest Protein Powder one at a time. Make sure each scoop is fully incorporated before adding the next one. Once fully blended, pour soup into serving bowls. Top with remaining broccoli and cheese and serve immediately.
