Default The soup of God!

Or maybe just a simple broccoli soup...


I found these soups to be great for dieting as they're very filling with very few calories. (if you don't add anything to it )


Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds broccoli (you can use cauliflower aswell, or a mix of both)
1 large onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
Salt and black pepper
2 bouillion cubes, chicken or vegetable, I prefer chicken.

Optional:
0% greek yoghurt, cottage cheese or cream
Potato or flour
Garlic
Cayenne pepper
Red pepper flakes
Whatever spice you prefer (Basil and Parsely work well)
Pine nuts or roasted almond slices



Roughly chop the onion (and optional garlic) and put it in a pan with a bit of olive oil or PAM, or whatever you're using and fry it till it's nice and brown.

Chop up the broccoli and carrot, put it in the pan, fill it with water till the broccoli is immersed.

You can use some potatoe or about 3 spoonsful of all purpose flour to add a bit of texture to the mix, but this isn't really necessary if you want to keep it low carb/kcal.

Crumble the bouillion cubes into the water and boil slowly for about 12 minutes on a low flame.

Use a (immersion) blender to mash it all together into a creamy soup.
You might want to pour out some excess water first to achieve the right thickness.

Dressing:
Now you can dress it up if you like. You can add your spices, pepper and salt
Roasted pine nuts and almond slices are a nice addition.
If you want some body you can scoop in some cottage cheese or you can just add your chicken breast to the soup.

Just a little strong tasting cheese like gorgonzola may add alot of flavour.

If you want a zesty vibe you can squeeze half a lemon into some low fat greek yoghurt and just put a couple of scoops in there.

Great idea, I totally forgot about making soups.

I'm not too sure about putting greek yogourt or cottage cheese directly in the soup though?!

I did it as a replacement for cream... it's not the same but it will give it some body and some creaminess + protein.

To make it a complete low-carb meal you could add chicken, 0% greek yoghurt or cottage cheese is what I mean

With the protein added, it makes for a very filling meal.

I have to say this was pretty amazing. Although I steamed the veggies, blended them with a food processor, combined it all in a bowl with onion/garlic powder and cheese then microwaved it the end result was the same.
