Recipe Ingredients for Cream of Broccoli Soup

1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound broccoli, tough ends removed, stems and florets chopped
4 cup fat-free chicken broth
1 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1/4 tsp hot sauce
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper

Recipe Directions for Cream of Broccoli Soup

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

  2. Add broccoli and stock to onion mixture and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, turn down heat and simmer until broccoli is soft but still green, about 8 minutes. Do not cover pot as broccoli is cooking or it will turn gray.

  3. Remove soup from heat and blend until smooth. (Note: Be careful not to overfill blender to prevent the hot liquid from splattering.) Add evapourated milk and hot pepper sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Yields about 1 3/4 cups per serving.
