This was simple and great - a nice depth and balance of flavor. I roughly pureed about 2/3 of the soup to give it a thicker consistency. We had it with a salad as dinner and the two of us ate all of it. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion and garlic in oil with the bay leaf for 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add broccoli, and broth, wine, and water. Note: if using already cooked broccoli, add in after simmering for 10 minutes to just heat.
  3. Bring to a boil and simmer gently, covered for 10 minutes. The broccoli should be tender but still bright green.
  4. Remove the bay leaf and cool slightly.
  5. Blend the soup in blender or food processor until completely smooth.
  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Return to pot and reheat gently.
  8. Pour the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the toasted sunflower seeds.
