This is a clean, basic approach to soup that showcases the vegetable. You can make this with nearly anything ? including peas and basil, zucchini, carrots and ginger. In this case, broccoli is made a bit more dynamic with a handful of peppery arugula.

Recipe Ingredients for Broccoli and Arugula Soup

0.75 cup Arugula
1 stalk, large (11"-12" long) Broccoli
0.5 lemon yields Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Olive Oil

Recipe Directions for Broccoli and Arugula Soup

Heat the olive oil in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and onion and sauté for just a minute or until fragrant. Add the broccoli and cook for four minutes or until bright green. Add the water, salt and pepper, bring to a boil, lower the heat and cover. Cook for eight minutes or until the broccoli is just tender. Pour the soup into a blender and puree with the arugula until quite smooth. Be very careful when blending hot liquids; start slowly and work in batches if necessary (you don?t want the steam to blow the lid off). Serve the soup with a bit of fresh lemon.
