    Default Broccoli cheese soup

    Lowfat Broccoli Soup, Veggie-style

    I HATE broccoli but I do love this soup.

    1 tbsp. olive oil
    1 med. chopped onion
    2 stalks chopped celery, 2 carrots (optional but good)
    11/2 lbs chopped broccoli, florets and stalks
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 med. Yukon gold potatoes, rinsed and chopped
    1 cup no-or-low-fat yogurt or sour cream or half of each
    1 cup grated low-fat sharp cheddar OR 1/2 cup good- quality grated Parmesan cheese
    2-3 cups vegetable stock
    salt and pepper

    Saute onions, celery, carrots until translucent. Add chopped broccoli stalks to onions (cut off any tough parts). Chop florets and set them aside.

    Add garlic and potatoes, then stalks, salt and pepper to taste, and cover with stock. Partially cover and gently cook until tender, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add florets until tender, but still bright green.

    Add half of soup to blender and half the yogurt or sour cream. Puree and pour pureed soup into large bowl. Repeat with the other half of soup and yogurt. Pour it all back into the pot, raise heat to medium and add cheese. Add ground black pepper. Do NOT boil, but gently stir until cheese is melted.

    Serve in bowls. Top with more cheese, parsley or scallions, and croutons if you like. Yum, yum!

    I'll have to make this. Mr. Gator loves broccoli cheese soup. My recipe is very different and came out of a health food cookbook so there's very little cheese in it at all..I don't care much for it but this sounds good.

    You could use all Parmesan, which is fairly low fat, or even some light goat feta. I think it tastes best with sharp cheddar, but I've experimented a little and those options work, too.

    I made this today for lunch. I was short 1/4 c. sour cream but it still turned out SOOOOOOO good. Great recipe!
