Evapourated fat-free milk makes this filling soup creamy but also keeps it low in calories and fat.

Ingredients

Uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, chopped

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

Uncooked broccoli

2 pound(s), tough ends removed, stems and florets chopped

Fat free chicken broth

4 cup(s), or vegetable broth

Fat free evaporated milk

1 cup(s)

Hot pepper sauce

¼ tsp(s)

Table salt

tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

pinch, or to taste

Instructions

  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.
