Simply Broccoli. Soup.

I  love to make fruit and veggie smoothies and I love soup; I am not sure why the idea hadn't crossed my mind sooner. This is so simple yet it's delicious. At 43 calories for a generous-sized bowl, there's room for a grilled cheese sandwich in here somewhere. I'm thinking with some spelt bread and a really creamy brie. Yum!

You will be amazed at just how much flavor this soup has and just how simple it is to throw together!


2 broccoli crowns, broken in to pieces (approx 9 ounces)
pinch kosher salt
water, enough to just cover

1 - Cook broccoli on stovetop or in microwave until tender but still bright green.  This took 4 minutes in my microwave. Do not over cook!

2 - Pour into blender with enough of the cooking liquid to cover (you do no want floating broccoli) and a pinch of salt.

3 - FOR YOUR SAFETY: Be sure to take the middle part out of the lid to your blender.  This will keep pressure from building up and from burning yourself or others (or just making a mess). Place lid on top of blender and cover with kitchen towel.  Hold towel on while you purée into soup.

4 - On high speed, blend into soup until smooth.  Serve immediately.  Makes 2 servings.
