Since I did not decorate in any way for the holiday the least I could do is eat green food, right? Yea, I know, who wants to eat green food? Me! As, long as the item is naturally green, and isn’t just dyed green. So, I thought I would share with you one of my favorite, 15 minute meals, Fake it- Broccoli Soup.
I love a good Cream of Broccoli soup, but usually when the word cream proceeds the word soup, it means you shouldn’t eat it. So, while on my little stint with Weight Watchers(which when I have the time works well for me), I worked this little baby out and I think it was only 2 points per serving. So, not only can you eat it and enjoy it, you can feel good about it too!
Cream of Broccoli Soup
(serves at least 8, I make it large and then freeze individual servings in ziplock bags,
for when I need to eat, but don’t want to cook- which is pretty much everyday!)
1 bag frozen Broccoli Florettes
1 bag frozen Cauliflower Florettes
1/2 medium onion
3 cans Cream of Broccoli Soup
1-2 cans chicken broth
1/2 bag frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups water
Dallop of sour cream
In a large saucepan add chicken broth, water and frozen broccoli and Cauliflower.
Meanwhile in a small saute pan, spray a little shot of cooking spray and add the onions,
saute till translucent and soft.
When the broccoli and cauliflower are soft add the 3 cans cream of Broccoli soup and sauted onion. And then puree in batches in your blender or food processor. Because there is not thickening agent in this soup, pureeing is key, it is what gives the soup thickness.
Return soup to pot add the peas and salt and pepper to taste, bring up to heat and then serve! Easy-peasy!
We served ours with Parmesan toast- which can be the “gold”!
butter lightly some bread or rolls of your choice
(optional) light sprinkle of Garlic Salt
sprinkle with Parmesan
Toast! Till the Parmesan is golden brown!
(we use our trusty little toaster oven but you could broil it in the oven)

>Yummy! My family will so love this!
>This is a great idea. I do the same kind of thing with the cheddar broccoli soup. Sometimes I'll add extra frozen broccoli and of course I always add a lot of extra shredded cheese. In the end it tastes a lot like the restaurant kind, so good!
