  • Add broccoli, potato, broth, and enough water (4 to 5 cups) to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium, and simmer until broccoli and potato are tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Using a blender or an immersion blender, puree broth and vegetables until smooth. If using a blender, work in batches and fill only halfway, allowing heat to escape: Remove cap from hole in lid, cover lid firmly with a dish towel, and blend. Transfer to a clean pot as you work. Adjust soups consistency with a little water if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

Easy and delicious. After I ladle the soup into individual bowls, I sprinkle a bit of shredded cheddar cheese to make it a Brocolli Cheese Soup. YUM YUM...
