This silky and delicious soup is the perfect dinner for low-calorie days. Eat a bowl along with a green salad and you will feel amazingly light when you wake up the following morning. 


I like to include a potato as it thickens the soup and gives it a little more body. It helps you to feel more satisfied and will keep you from snacking before bedtime. I prefer to use heavy cream. Calories and fat are not our enemy ladies. Consuming too much of it is. When you switch out the fatty items to fat-free you will end up with cravings. Instead, stick to the real deal and don’t overeat.


This soup is super easy to make, takes little time and it freezes well. 

  • 1 tablespoon of oil or butter 
  • 1 large onion 
  • Garlic, use as much as you like 
  • Thyme 
  • 1 tablespoon of flour  
  • 1 medium potato 
  • Around 1 lb of broccoli 
  • Around 4 cups of broth 
  • ¼ cup of heavy cream or half and half 
  • Salt and pepper 


  1. Heat butter or oil in a pot, add onion and cook until translucent  
  1. Add garlic and thyme, cook until fragrant 
  1. Stir in the flour and toast until it starts getting color, maybe one minute 
  1. Add half the broth, stir to avoid lumps, add potato and simmer for a little while 
  1. Use as much broth as needed to get to desired consistency 
  1. Add broccoli and cook until soft 
  1. Blend until smooth, then add cream and serve 

 Add salt and pepper as you go along. Be careful with the salt as the broth already contains lots. 

Tip: divide the soup into 4 containers and freeze for future quick fixes. Do not add cream to the freezer meals until you heat them up.
