Creamy Broccoli Soup

Community Recipe from


  • 1 tablespoon(s) Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium onion Chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) Crushed red pepper Optional
  • 2 cup(s) Low-sodium Vegetable broth
  • 1 bunch(es) broccoli, florets, 7 cups Roughly chopped and stems pealed and sliced

  1. 1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and red pepper (if using) and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft, 4-6 mins.
  2. 2. Add the broth, broccoli, potato, 2 cups water, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the vegetable are very tender, 18 to 20 mins.
  3. 3. In a blender, working in batches, puree the soup until smooth, adjusting the consistency with water as necessary. (Alternatively, use a handheld immersion blender in the saucepan). Top with the CHeddar and bagel chips, if desired, before serving.
