Broccoli Leek Soup

1 1/2 lb fresh broccoli, chopped into bite size chunks
1 leek
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 potato, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 bay leaf
2 (13 3/4 oz size) cans FF chicken broth
2 cups plain soy/rice milk
1 tablespoon Soy Garden spread

Trim the roots from the leek and discard. Cut leek lengthwise into quarters. Place leek in cold water and let soak 5 minutes; wash to remove sand. Cut leek into 1/2 inch slices.

Place broccoli, leek, celery, salt, pepper, nutmeg and bay leaf in a heavy 6-quart dutch oven. Add chicken broth and enough water to measure 4 cups liquid.

Bring soup to boiling over high heat. Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes or until veggies are tender.

Handheld Blender - remove bay leaf and puree veggies in pot.

Blender/Food Processor - Drain, reserving broth. Discard bay leaf. In a blender/food processor, puree veggies 1/2 at a time, adding some of the broth if necessary. Return all to pot.

Add soy milk and Soy Garden spread. Simmer about 5 more minutes until well blended and very hot. Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.

Serve with lots of fat free saltines or crusty french bread.

Hey, Mags, I wanna make some broccoli soup. I love broccoli, but it does a real number on my tummy. I figure this is a good way to have my broccoli and eat it too. I gather this recipe is more of a "cream of broccoli" type soup since you puree it all? Think I can get away with it, or will it cramp me up? It counts as an insoluble fiber even though it's pureed, right? RIGHT???!!! Bev (I promise not to add any worms.)

It is still insoluble, but when you cook insoluble, it makes it easier to digest. When you puree insoluble, it makes it easier, so in this soup you get it as safe as possible. Eat it with lots of saltines or bread for your soluble base, and you should be fine. I also take beano as a backup, which should also help.

Beano helps you digest those types of foods to prevent gas & bloating. Fennel tea helps gas & bloating that you already have.

Except for one little thing -- Beano doesn't work.

That's too bad it doesn't work for you. It works great for me. Maybe there is a different kind? I'm not sure.

Mags, you have a winner here! I just made it. It's simple, delicious, and I finally am getting my beloved broccoli. YUM! (Okay, so Don ain't crazy 'bout it -- but he doesn't like ANY cream soups. Nevertheless, this one he ate, in fact he ate an entire bowl, with no complaints.)

Yep -- we have a WINNER!

Bev.
