Some mornings I can feel fall trying to peek around the corner, so I know that winter isn’t far behind.  If there’s one thing I love in the winter time, it’s coming home to a big bowl of hot soup.  I can’t say I’ve got a favorite, but I can truthfully say that Broccoli Cheese Soup is one of my favorites.  However, I had not a clue there was a low-carb version around until Jamie Van Eaton’s post popped up in my Blog Reader.  Just in time for soup season she’s provided us with what sounds like a wonderfully cheesy and easy cold weather treat.  She calls it On Wisconsin! Broccoli Cheese Soup.

I like easy recipes and I like recipes that have easy-to-find common household ingredients as much as possible and this one pretty much fits that description.  ThickenThin, a flour thickener substitute is probably not available at Wally World, but may be available at some of the whole or health food stores.  In addition, there are several alternative ways to thicken soups and sauces including xanthan gum, which I’ve used successfully.

Jamie Van Eaton is the Low-Carb Examiner for and also writes a great blog entitled The Lighter Side of Low Carb where she is affectionately known as Cleochatra.  Check her out and add her to your BlogRoll.  You’ll be glad you did!
