Potato & Broccoli Soup

Another deliciously easy recipe that you'll love.

If you've watched the DVD I have been lending out, 10 Things You Need To Know About Losing Weight, you may recall that thick and hearty soup helps you feel fuller for longer.

Having soup as a starter will also help to reduce portion sizes of your main meal, or you may find you enjoy soup as a meal in itself.

This soup also works well with leek instead of broccoli.

1 tbspn olive oil
2 broccoli heads, trim stalks and dice
3 large potatoes, diced (I leave the skin on for added nutrients & to thicken)
500 ml chicken stock (most are suitable for vegetarians)
1.5 lt water
1 cup milk (optional)
Salt & pepper to taste

Heat oil in large saucepan on medium heat
Add potato & broccoli, cook for 2 minutes, stirring to avoid sticking
Stir in stock & water, bring to boil for 20 minutes
Puree (I love the stick whiz!)
Stir in milk (optional) & season to taste

This serves 4 as an entree.
To make more, double the veggies but only use 50% more liquid. Eg. 6 x potatoes, 750ml stock, 2.5lt water. Freezes & defrost well.
