Adapted from epicurious.com. This is a fantastic low-fat soup recipe that tastes very creamy. It is also fast and easy-a really great healthy soup for the broccoli lover!! I used my immersion blender to make it even creamier.

Well you SHOULD try this soon because it's absolutely delicious! I used fresh broccoli, water instead of broth and dried parsley, and it turned out very flavourful, hearty and creamy! This also freezes really well, so it's a great recipe to make LOTS of! Thanks!
