Homemade Cream of Broccoli Soup

I LOVE this recipe.   I found it in a weight watchers cookbook, so it's only 127 cal per serving!

Makes 4 servings -or 2 1/2 if your me :)

1 1/2 T canola oil
1 small onion
1 carrot
1 celery stalk
3/4 t dried thyme
1 pound broccoli florets (about 2 cups)
3 cups chicken broth (I've also used vegetable - can't tell a difference)
1 t lemon juice
1/2 c skim milk
3/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium.
Add onion, carrot, celery, and thyme
Stir occasionally until softened - 5 min.

Add broccoli and broth
Turn up heat to high until it boils, then reduce to medium-low and let simmer - 25 min.
Remove from heat and add lemon juice.
Let cool 10 min.
Transfer to blender - do half at a time

Return to saucepan - make sure to rinse your blender!  It turns into a paste nightmare to clean up!
Add milk, salt, & pepper
Heat through - 5 min.

My 2 year old ate this up!  It's always nice finding something she'll shovel down. :) Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!
