In my post Christmas quest to lose 20 lbs, I came up with this recipe! Besides being quite tasty, its economical - enjoy the tender broccoli florets as a side one day & use the tougher stalks to make this soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; saute onion& garlic until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Peel the broccoli stalks& cut into 1/2 inch rounds; saute, stirring occasionally for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in broth, water, oats& seasonings; bring to a boil, reduce heat& simmer for about 15 minutes or until broccoli is tender.
  4. Being careful with this hot liquid, puree in batches in a blender; return to the pot& test for seasonings.

Liked the flavor of this soup quite a bit. Everyone enjoyed it and have to say the nutmeg and white pepper really made it for me. EASY! Thanks CountryLady.
