“Adapted from This is a fantastic low-fat soup recipe that tastes very creamy. It is also fast and easy-a really great healthy soup for the broccoli lover!! I used my immersion blender to make it even creamier.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 709.77 ml frozen chopped broccoli (or fresh broccoli florets)
  • 1 onion, cut into quarters
  • 1-2 clove garlic, peeled
  • 354.88-473.18 ml chicken broth or 354.88-473.18 ml water (or combination of the two)

  1. In a large pot, combine broccoli, onion, garlic, broth (I used vegetable broth) or water, and salt.
  2. Cover pot, bring to a boil, and then simmer for about 15 minutes, or until everything starts getting soft.
  3. Use a ladle to transfer 2/3 of the soup into a blender.
  4. Blend the soup until smooth. (I just used my immersion blender until I was happy with the texture.)
  5. Pour back into saucepan and turn on heat to medium setting.
  6. In a small bowl, combine milk with flour and whisk together until smooth.
  7. Pour mixture into soup and stir.
  8. Add basil and parsley and stir until soup begins to thicken.
