Directions

  • Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir garlic through the onion; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant and slightly soft, another 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Place broccoli, diced tomatoes, and chicken broth into the stockpot. Reduce heat to medium-low, bring the mixture to a simmer, and cook until the broccoli is completely softened, 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Stir milk into the soup and return to a simmer.

  • Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway. Hold the lid of the blender firmly in place and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a serving dish. Season with salt and black pepper to serve.

I liked this soup a lot. I wasn't sure at first but it grows on you you have to give it a try. It was easy to make pureed nicely. And what's best it was very satisfying. I made minor changes: 1) to make it vegetarian I used seasoned water instead of chicken stock. a veggie stock would work as well. 2) added basil 3) served with a dab of unflavored yogurt in the middle (if you love sour cream as much as I do this is a nice substitution to avoid heart attack) 4) topped with fried mushrooms (seasoned with salt black pepper parsley flakes and garlic powder) This adds a bit of a kick and crunch:)

Unique flavor. I enjoyed this. FYI it is also tastey if you add diced leftover fried chicken

I used water instead of chicken broth and soy milk instead of cow's milk. Instead of pureeing this smooth I left it chunky the way my family prefers! This is a "comfort" food. Thanks for the recipe!

Really quite good....very few ingredients and all I had on hand...fresh broccoli a must. I used fat free/low sodium chicken broth and fat free half and half instead of the milk. Pureed in batches in my food processor and served with red hot pepper flakes on mine. Very hearty and healthy with all of the broccoli and all of the fat free ingredients. I really enjoyed it and it was super quick to make. Thanks!

This was really good but it was too thick for me next time I will use more liquid.

I hate tomato soup but I thought I might like this with broccoli in it. LOVE IT. Used a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes with basil because I didn't have diced tomatoes used a sweet onion 1% milk and wow. This is what I want to eat with grilled cheese sandwiches.

I followed the directions exactly using a Vitamix blender. I did include the stalks pared and chopped. It did not come out chunky as pictured. It was scrumptulously puréed! I added pepper only at the end; additional salt was not needed. My husband and I both loved it. I will add this one to my collection and definitely make it again especially coming into the colder seasons.
