CREAM OF BROCCOLI & CARROT SOUP
Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 3 PointsPlus™
1 medium onion, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 TBSP light butter
3 cups fresh broccoli florets
3 cups fat-free milk, divided
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
1/8 tsp pepper
3 TBSP all-purpose flour
In a large saucepan coated with spray, cook the onion, carrots and celery in the butter for @3 minutes.
Add broccoli and cook @3 more minutes.
Stir in 2 3/4 cup milk, salt, thyme and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 5 – 10 minutes until vegetables are tender.
Combine the flour and 1/4 cup milk until smooth. Gradually stir into the soup. Bring to a boil. Cook @2 more minutes or until thickened.
MY SPIN: I used more than 3 cups of broccoli florets which did not add PointsPlus™ value. Also, I would use less thyme next time, but that's just a personal preference.
Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***
