How To Make Low Fat Full Flavor Cream of Broccoli Soup

Low on fat but big on flavor, this cream of broccoli soup combines low-sodium chicken broth and fat-free evaporated milk for a rich and creamy bowl.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 1tbspbutter
  • 4leeks,chopped
  • ¼tspsalt
  • ½tspfresh ground black pepper
  • ¼tspground coriander
  • 2heads fresh broccoli,chopped
  • 32ozlow-sodium chicken broth,(1 carton)
  • 12fl ozfat-free evaporated milk,(1 can)


  1. Melt butter in a large pot, and cook the leeks over medium heat for about 5 minutes until soft and translucent. Stir in salt, pepper, and coriander.

  2. Reserve about ¼ cup of small broccoli florets, and cook the rest of the broccoli with the leeks for about 5 more minutes until the broccoli is bright green.

  3. Pour in the chicken stock, bring the soup to a boil, cover, then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the broccoli is very tender.

  4. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree.

  5. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.

  6. Return the blended soup to the pot, stir in the reserved broccoli florets, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often.

  7. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until the broccoli florets are tender. Remove from heat, and mix in the condensed milk.

  8. Serve warm and enjoy.
