Author Notes:
Cream of broccoli soup is a fast and easy option for a full-flavored meal any time of year.

Cooking tip: Once you begin to add the milk and sour cream, make sure to not bring the soup to a boil or you run the risk of curdling. If you're reheating it in a microwave, be sure to heat only on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team:

Serves: 4

  • vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 1/2 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  1. In a large Dutch oven or stockpot sprayed with cooking spray, cook onions 3 minutes or until translucent. Add broccoli and water and cook covered, about 8 minutes or until broccoli stems are tender.
  2. Remove 1/2 cup of broccoli and chop finely. Set aside for garnish.
  3. Puree remaining broccoli, cooking liquid, and milk in batches in a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth.
  4. Return mixture to pan and whisk in remaining ingredients. Heat over medium-low heat until hot, but not boiling. Serve topped with 1 tablespoon reserved chopped broccoli.
