"Cream" of Broccoli

I had a better day today than yesterday. It was a long day but good. I have to tell you that I managed to stand in a kitchen with cake and KFC and eat a nice soup I had made. But I WANTED the KFC. I would have kissed the Colonel Saunders himself to eat some of his chicken. And it was right there in front of me, calling out to me. But I was strong and I am doing okay.

Here is what I made:

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Serves: 4

1 onion
4 cup(s) broccoli florets
2 cups of frozen mixed veggies
6 cups vegetable stock
3 tablespoon(s) corn starch
3 cup(s) milk
salt and white pepper powder to taste

Water fry chopped onion until translucent. Pour in stock. Add broccoli and veggies to the stock and cook for about 4 minutes or till the broccoli is tender. Cool and make a puree.

Mix cornstarch with a little water and stir into soup. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Mix in the salt and white pepper powder. Pour in the puree and heat through.


Garnish with a sprinkle of your favorite herb and spice powder. (I used bay leaves, basil and garlic.)

Awesome job on staying strong! I know that you felt proud of yourself. It just spurs you on to do even better!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
