Step 1

Put onion and garlic in a 2-quart saucepan with 1/4 cup water and simmer until onion is soft, about 10 minutes; spoon into a large pot

Step 2

Add broccoli and stock to onion mixture and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, turn down heat and simmer until broccoli is soft but still green, about 8 minutes. Do not cover pot as broccoli is cooking or it will turn gray.

Step 3

Remove soup from heat and blend until smooth. (Note: Be careful not to overfill blender to prevent the hot liquid from splattering.) Add evapourated milk and hot pepper sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Yields about 1 3/4 cups per serving.

This is a good, easy to make comfort soup. I'm not an official Weight Watcher, but I do try to watch my weight so I appreciate how low fat this is. I only had enough broccoli for one serving of soup, and instead of opening a can of evaporated milk, I used 2% milk and cornstarch to make a slurry. Also added a bit of celery salt and lemon pepper to the broccoli as it was cooking to boost the flavor. A keeper for sure.
