    breezermom's Note:

    This is not a Broccoli Cheese Soup, or a Cream of Broccoli soup...this is just vegetables. It does have a starch in it, so if you are in a diet that eliminates starches, now you know! Low fat, and very healthy. I like broccoli, celery, and basil, so I like this! Plus it is sooo healthy!

    1. 1
      Saute onion in oil in a Dutch oven until tender. Add potato, celery, garlic, salt and pepper, and saute for 10 minutes. Add broth, broccoli, and basil; stir well. Bring mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
    2. 2
      Transfer half of the broccoli mixture to a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. (I just use my handheld blender and puree it all!).
    3. 3
      Serve in soup bowls.

      New Years Resolutions are happening, and I'm trying to lose weight. Especially from all the sweets I ate over Chirstmas! I really enjoyed this broccoli soup. I reduced the olive oil, but left some because olive oil is a "good" oil, and in addition to dieting, I'm getting older and need those good oils for my eyes, skin and hair. Loved the basil!

      I made this exactly as posted, except I used 2 T. of olive oil, which was plenty. I thought the amount of dried basil seemed like a lot, but it was perfect. I used fresh broccoli from the farm, which I steamed in the microwave first. It was tasty and filling and, best of all, guilt-free! Thanks for sharing.

      I, too, was surprised at just how much I liked this. It really has a nice flavor even without cream or cheese. I loved the half-pureed texture. I made this as written, but only used about 1 tbsp of olive oil. (If this is a "diet" soup, why do we need 1/4 cup of oil???). Thanx for sharing.
