Recipe for Low Fat Full Flavor Cream of Broccoli Soup

1 tbsp butter

4 leeks (chopped)

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

1/4 tsp ground coriander

2 heads fresh broccoli (chopped)

1 (32 oz) carton low-sodium chicken broth

1 (12 fluid oz) can fat-free evaporated milk

Preparation Method

In a large pot, melt the butter and cook the leeks over medium heat until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper and coriander.

Reserve about 1/4 cup of small broccoli florets, and cook the rest of the broccoli with the leeks until the broccoli is bright green, about 5 more minutes. Pour in the chicken stock, bring the soup to a boil, cover, then simmer until the broccoli is very tender, 10-15 minutes.

Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, 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 clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.

Return the blended soup to the pot, stir in the reserved broccoli florets, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often. Simmer until the broccoli florets are tender, 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat, and mix in the condensed milk. Serve hot.
