Broccoli Soup

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on January 9, 2013


I found this recipe at my mom’s house at Thanksgiving. We love this simple recipe so much, I make almost once a week. It is a great way to get more vegetables in your diet.

Adapted from Melissa McCarthy’s recipe


  • 2 bags of frozen broccoli
  • 1 bag frozen soycotash (Trader Joe’s edemame succotash)
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • few sprinkles garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1.  In large stockpot , over medium high heat, add broccoli, soycotash and chicken broth.
  2.  Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes with pot partially covered.
  4. Puree with an immersion blender until slightly chunky.
  5.  Serve and enjoy.

* Regular frozen succotash or frozen green beans will also work, instead of the soycotash.

WIAW #39

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on January 9, 2013


Hello Everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from Monday. I have a cold, so I am eating comfort food.  Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day with coffee and Noosa strawberry yogurt, Uncle Sam cereal and slivered almonds.



AM Snacks (10:30am)

A couple of kiwis, since they have more vitamin C than oranges. 🙂


Lunch (11:45am)

A very tasty bowl of chicken soup, make by my good friend Jennifer (the RD). 🙂 And a open-faced grilled cheese with avocado. (Chicken Soup Recipe Here)



Dinner (5:30pm)

Homemade broccoli soup (recipe here) and a roast beef sandwich with cheese and tomato.



Dessert (6:30pm)

Homemade Nutella Hot Chocolate with whipped cream. So yummy!!! When you are sick you need to treat yourself. 🙂 (I will be posting this recipe later in the month)
