Quick Broccoli, Bell Pepper & Cheese Soup

broccbellpeppersoup2
Broccoli is like the king of vegetables loaded with nutrients like vitamin A, C, Calcium and dietary fiber. This dark green vegetable is very in expensive for the amount of nutrition it provides. Even the conventional broccoli has very low pesticide residue so it is one of the safest vegetable if you are not able to find an organic one to go for. What ever is your diet type, a low carbohydrate, low glycemic, weight loss diet, broccoli is a vegetable that falls in that category.

If you have a Vitamix and are running short of time and looking for something quick, filling keep you charged up then try this soup. Takes less than 10 Minutes to make this soup and I liked it. If you don’t have a vitamix, sautee the vegetables in a stove top and then puree with milk and cheese and simmer once again for few minutes and I am sure that would taste even better.



Preparation Time – 5 - 10 Minutes

Processing Time – 5 to 6 Minutes

Serves – 2





Ingredients





Milk – 1 Cup

Shredded low fat cheddar cheese – 1/3 Cup

Broccoli – 1 Cup

Orange & Yellow Bell Pepper – 3/4 Cup

Chopped Onion – 1 Tbsp

Vegetable bouillon cube – 1/2 (This will have salt and spice so taste and add more salt if required)

Black pepper – 1 Tsp(Crushed)

Coconut Oil – 1 Tsp



Method

1)  Quickly saute the broccoli, bell pepper and onion in high heat for 2-3 minutes with little bit coconut oil and set this aside for few minutes to cool down.

2) Now add the vegetables, milk, cheese, bouillon cube in vitamix and close securely with the lid.

3) Select variable 1 and turn on the machine and slowly increase to variable 10, then to high.

4) Blend for 5-6 minutes or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid, serve hot with freshly crushed black pepper.

If you don’t have vitamix, then blending all the ingredients after step 2, simmer in stove top for few minutes and serve hot with freshly ground black pepper.
