Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 cups (cut from about 2 pounds of whole broccoli heads) broccoli florets
  • Salt and white pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup plain whole yogurt or soy yogurt

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat butter in a large pot over medium heat. Saute onion until softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in milk, bring to a boil, and simmer for 4 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Cook the broccoli florets in rapidly boiling salted water until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water to set the bright green color. Drain.

  3. Step 3

    Puree the milk mixture with broccoli in a blender. Return the soup to the saucepan and heat thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper. Serve lukewarm to warm. Garnish each serving with a dollop of yogurt.
