Five Minute Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Submitted by: MOUNTROYALMOM

Introduction

It's hard to believe that there is no cream or milk in this amazing soup. The secret are the navy beans, which add richness and thicken without all of the fat. Literally takes 5 minutes to make. I keep a can of beans in the cupboard and broccoli in the fridge as my emergency meal when the fridge is almost empty and I don't feel like cooking!!!
Note: Feel free to swap in low fat cheddar to reduce the fat content, but make sure it's OLD/AGED cheddar, to maintain the cheesy taste.
