Creamy Broccoli Soup


15-1/2 oz canned white beans
10 oz frozen broccoli, thawed
2 cups skim milk (preferably fortified skim milk)
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Black pepper to taste


Puree beans and broccoli with skim milk in a blender. Add mixture to a large soup pot or microwaveable container along with the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil on top of the stove or in the microwave. Stir and serve hot.

We recommend serving this soup with a large salad. Optional garnish: Sprinkle light shredded cheddar on top of the soup.

Cook's Tips:

Fortified skim milk is often called Skim Plus - it is thicker than regular skim milk and contains added calcium. Sodium can be reduced by 30% if you rinse the beans.
