Ingredients

  • 8 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 4 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 can cannellini beans (white beans), rinsed and drained
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • shredded, reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (optional)
  • Chef notes

    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.

    Preparation

    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.
