I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs for Weight Watchers recipes, Gina's WW Recipes. She listed this as making four servings but it is probably more like 6 which makes the points even lower. I made up a batch of this last week and brought a bowl to work for lunch everyday. Sure, it is no Panera broccoli cheese soup but it is satisfying and filling and healthy to boot.
3 cans fat free chicken broth
1/2 cup milk (2 percent)
2 tbsp low fat sour cream
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 onion chopped
1 carrot, peeled and chopped
1 celery stalk chopped
1 clove garlic chopped
5 cups broccoli florets (head of 2 large bunches)
Ground black pepper to taste
In a medium sized stock pot, bring chicken broth, onions, carrots, garlic, and celery to a boil. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Add broccoli, milk and pepper and cook, covered, 10 more minutes. Add sour cream and puree soup. Adjust pepper to taste and heat through over medium heat. Add cheddar cheese and serve.
