Delicious soup to use leftover broccoli or cauliflower. I have used both - alone and together. It's easy and 0 point if you are following the Weight Watchers plan!

  1. Dice cauliflower and/or broccoli.

I love this! It's very versatile. I didn't use the bouIion and I added a cup of sliced celery and used half low-sodium chicken broth and half water for the liquid. I also pureed all the celery and about 3/4 of the carrots and added some garlic powder and onion powder. This is a great way to use what you find at your local farmer's market and adjust it to your own tastes. Thanks for sharing!

It's a good soup but I altered it to kick it up a notch for my liking. Without substantially altering its WW Zero point status, add 2T of apple cider vinegar to give it a little tang, 1 t of thyme and a few cloves minced garlic (sauteed in with the onions first before boiling up the lot) to bring it up. I used cauliflower and broccoli in mine 2:1 ratio. I'm thinking I would leave out the broccoli and just go cauliflower next time. Also to give it cheesy goodness without the calories and fat of cheese, think about sprinkling on a tablespoon or so of nutritional yeast flakes (about 10 cals) to garnish.

This was just okay for a basic start to broccoli soup. I used chicken broth instead of water and boullion. I found I needed to add quite a few things to make it tasty. I added a clove of garlic, bay leaf, 1/2 can of diced tomatoes with green chillies and some asparagus oops and 2 T of red wine. Still low cal but so much more flavor.
