Hungry Tummy Tuesday
No Cream Creamy Broccoli Soup
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped onions
3 tablespoons oil
2 (14.5 ounce) cans fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup MINUTE Premium White Rice, uncooked
2 cups milk
1/4 cup KRAFT 100% Grated Parmesan Cheese
Cook and stir carrots, celery and onions in hot oil in large saucepan on medium-high heat 5 min. Add broth and pepper; stir. Bring to boil.
Stir in broccoli and rice. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 to 15 min. or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.
Add soup, in batches, to blender or food processor; cover. Blend until pureed. Return soup puree to saucepan. Add milk and cheese; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
I like this soup. It's really healthy and it's good for being healthy. So far no one else in my family wants to try it but if your families aren't as picky then I say you should try it. I had some for lunch and I think I'll have some for dinner too!
