Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 medium onion(s), chopped
    1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
    2 pound(s) broccoli, tough ends removed, stems and florets chopped
    4 cup(s) fat-free chicken broth, or vegetable broth
    1 cup(s) fat-free evaporated milk
    1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce, or to taste
    1/4 tsp table salt, or to taste
    1/4 tsp black pepper, or to taste

Directions

Combine onion and garlic in a 2-quart saucepan with 1/4 cup of water. Simmer until onion is soft, about 10 minutes; spoon vegetables into a large pot.

Add broccoli and broth to pot; bring to a boil over high heat. Once soup boils, reduce heat and simmer until broccoli is soft but still green, about 8 minutes. Do not cover pot while broccoli is cooking or it will turn gray.

Remove soup from heat; puree until smooth in batches in a blender (be careful not to splatter hot liquid) or puree in pot using an immersion blender. Add evaporated milk and hot pepper sauce to soup; season to taste with salt and pepper. Yields about 1 3/4 cups per serving.

Number of Servings: 4

  • Found this recipe on WeightWatchers.com while doing the program last yr. NOTHING like real cream of broccoli soup. Watery, bland..really nothing good to say about it except that it's healthy. Even tried adding low-fat cheddar cheese to make it more exciting..still bad. Would not recommend, sorry!:( - 1/11/11

    Wow! That's a whole day's worth of sodium in one bowl of soup. It might be worth it to use homemade vegetable broth so you can control the amount of sodium. Also there is a LOT of fibre in here too, so don't have too much or...
    Otherwise this looks tasty. - 8/6/10

    Wow! Thanks for taking a peak. The sodium does seem high and I can mess with the ingredients to lower it that's for sure. In the future could you watch the way you critique something? Right off you hurt my feelings. That being said, I do appreciate your time and I will keep it in mind.
