Broccoli Diet Soup
Broccoli puree soup is a delicious and delicate creamy soup for diet food. You can cook it from frozen broccoli, which you need to get out of the freezer about 30 minutes before cooking. By the way, vitamins in frozen cabbage are better preserved than in fresh cabbage, provided that it is not thawed, frozen. Even the most finicky kids are unlikely to understand what is in its composition, and the color, if you do not digest the cabbage, turns out to be light green, so the dish looks extremely appetizing!
They say that the benefits of broccoli are somewhat exaggerated, which is, as always, the fault of commerce. However, if you compare it with ordinary, white or cauliflower, in my opinion, broccoli is much tastier. The use of broccoli also lies in the fact that 100 g contains only 28 kcal, so if you don’t cook too large portions, then you certainly do not face obesity.

A method of preparing a diet broccoli puree soup
Cook chicken broth. You do not need to have special skills for cooking it, but some points will help make it more tasty and rich. First, the bones in the broth are necessary, so use the drumsticks, wings and skeleton of the bird. Secondly, spices - parsley root, bay leaves a few cloves or arrows of garlic, a bunch of celery or parsley.
If the chicken broth is intended for cream soup, then you do not need to try to make it transparent, just strain it at the end.
Chicken stock is usually cooked for 1 hour over low heat.
So, prepare the soup puree. In a pan with a thick bottom, heat the vegetable oil for frying, add a tablespoon of cream. Then, when the butter has melted, throw the finely chopped onions.
To make the onion soft and transparent, but not burnt, add a few tablespoons of chicken stock or hot water. When the liquid has evaporated, simmer the onion for another 1-2 minutes and you can continue cooking.
Put the diced potatoes in small cubes. For creamy soups, I recommend using boiled potato varieties.
Pour hot broth into the pan, cook until the potatoes are ready, that is, about 10 minutes.
We divide broccoli into small inflorescences. You can cook soup with both frozen and fresh cabbage, this does not affect the taste of the finished dish.
Cook broccoli 10-12 minutes after boiling, close the pan with a lid!
Grind the finished soup with a submersible blender until smooth mashed potatoes, pour sea salt.
You can season it with milk or cream to taste, but this is not necessary, it turns out deliciously and without extra calories.
To the table we serve warm broccoli diet puree soup. If the diet allows, then with a slice of rye bread dried in a toaster. Enjoy your meal!
