Green Goodness Soup

1lb fresh broccoli crowns
1lb fresh spinach
1 small onion, diced
2 teaspoons Better than Bullion (or any veggie bullion or veggie broth)
Rolled Oats, if necessary

Steam the broccoli for about 5 minutes or until slightly tender. While the broccoli is steaming, sautee the onion in about 1 tablespoon olive oil. Keep the flame low and continue cooking until the onion is golden and soft. Let the broccoli cool slightly then chop. Add to the onion along with about 2 cups of water and the spinach. Cover and cook until the spinach is wilted, about 5-10 minutes. Add the Better than Bullion. Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup well until it is smooth and creamy. It should have a thick consistency. If you've added too much liquid, add about 1/2 cup of rolled oats and continue cooking another 10 minutes. Puree again.

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.
