Recipe Ingredients for Broccoli-Lemon Soup

3 stalks broccoli (large), chopped roughly
1 large onion, diced
1/4 cup lemon juice, divided
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 gallon vegetable broth
1 Salt to taste
1 Lemon pepper to taste
1 cup fat free yogurt, plain

Recipe Directions for Broccoli-Lemon Soup

  1. Heat large nonstick pan on medium heat; spray with cooking spray. Add onions, cook until translucent, stirring.

  2. Add broccoli and turmeric, and cook for 15 seconds, stirring constantly.

  3. Add one gallon vegetable broth, made with one large vegetable boullion cube.

  4. Bring to the boil; reduce heat and simmer until broccoli is cooked through.

  5. Turn off heat. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup thoroughly.

  6. Add half of the lemon juice, and salt and lemon pepper to taste. (I find that quite a bit of salt is needed.)

  7. In small bowl, mix yogurt with the rest of the lemon juice. Add a bit of salt.

  8. To serve, stir lemon yogurt and put a dollop on each bowl of soup. For a fancier presentation, but the yogurt in a squeeze bottle, and squeeze a spiral on the soup.
