99 Calorie Broccoli Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by A la Carte

This is from Dr. Weil. It makes a nice change from a heavy creamy broccoli soup, and for 99 calories per serving, you can easily have 2 bowls! Takes just a few minutes to make too.

Top Review by Laughing in the Kitchen

This soup is a real mixed bag for me, which is why I gave it three stars. The main con is the consistency. Even with blending, I don't feel like it's a smooth soup - it's a little too grainy for my taste. The flavoring and ease of making it are the major pros. I think I would consider making it without pureeing next time and maybe add some potatoes and onions as well.
