For a rich and creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup, that only adds 40 calories, top each bowl with 2 tablespoons of shredded, reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese and blend.
Liberally coat a large pot with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté for about 10 minutes, until soft and slightly browned.
Add broth, broccoli and beans to the pot, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove pot from heat. Using an immersion blender, puree mixture into a creamy consistency. (Alternatively, you can transfer mixture to a traditional blender and puree). Season with salt and pepper. Ladle the soup into bowls and enjoy.
