This soup is really healthy and cozy on a cold day. I recommend adding white beans to it for protein, I plan on trying that the next time I make it. Broccoli is really good for you, high in fiber and part of the Brassicae family of plants (like cabbage, cauliflower, etc). It has selenium, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. It's really a wonder food so get some more broccoli!
1 bag frozen chopped broccoli (I used a large bag)
1/2 large red onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, diced
1/2 can corn niblets
1 packet soup mix + ~8 cups water or 8 cups broth (I used mushroom soup, but any type of broth would be delicious)
salt and pepper
1. Cook the broccoli, onion and garlic in some vegetable oil until the broccoli softens. It should start to pull apart as you mix it.
2. Season heavily with salt and pepper. Add about 1/2 teaspoon on chili powder.
3. Add the soup mix and water or both. Bring to a boil.
4. Lower to a low boil and cook for 30+ minutes.
Delicious with some toasted bread or crackers.
