“I love Cream of Broccoli soup but the fat and calories do not like me. This is a lower fat but great tasting recipe to use. Keep in mind that if you use homemade chicken broth, remove the fat first ( let broth cool then skim off the fatty topping)”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 ounce) can low-fat chicken broth
  • 1 14 cups water
  • 2 14 cups broccoli, chopped include the stems
  • 12-1 cup onion, diced
  • 12 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 cup parmesan cheese or 12 cup pecorino cheese, shredded
  • 12 cup carrot, cut up (optional)


  1. Combine broth, water, broccoli and onion (carrots if using) and bring to a boil in a large saucepan.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer for 15 minute.
  3. (if you choose you can puree 1/2 or all of soup mixture at this point in a blender) I do 1/2 as I like the chunks of broccoli in my sup.
  4. Slowly add evaporated milk to soup mixture or med.-low heat stirring as you add. Add pepper and cheese.
  5. Let cool a few minutes then serve.
  6. add additional pepper to taste.
  7. this is good as a left over as well.
