Simple Broccoli Soup




  • 6 cups broccoli (stems and florets)
  • 2 cups low sodium broth
  • 1-2 cups water (optional, depending on how thick/thin you want the soup to be)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1 onion)
  • 2 celery stalks chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a medium sauce pan/pot add olive oil and onions, sauté on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the onions are soft and lightly browned. Add the garlic and celery, sauté for a few minutes longer.

Add broccoli and broth, stir with a spoon. Cover and let it cook for about 8-minutes or until it boils. Lower the heat and simmer for about 5 more minutes.
Remove the sauce pan/pot from the stove to purée. You can use an immersion blender or split the soup into smaller batches and use a regular blender.
