Soups: CREAM OF BROCCOLI SOUP - THanks Zig & Virginia! PointsPlus
4 boxes of frozen broccoli florets

1 large onion

10 cups fat free chicken broth

1 tbsp salt, cracked pepper

1/4 cup fat free half & half

Put three boxes of broccoli, onion, chicken broth and salt into a large pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes until broccoli is tender. Pour contents of pot into a blender. You’ll need a second pot! Once soup is pureed, pour back into large pot and add the last box of broccoli florets for a chunky soup. Add half & half and cracked pepper. Heat and serve. If you like the soup thicker, start with another box of broccoli. If you like it thinner, start with less broccoli.

Before adding half & half you can freeze soup. Add the half & half in when reheating. Top with low -fat shredded cheddar, not included in nutritional information.
