Confession time: I’m not big into New Year’s resolutions. I get that a new year seems like a clean slate, and that’s a good time for reevaluation, but I prefer to make “resolutions” (if you will), throughout the year, whenever I feel compelled to make changes in my life. For me, I’m more likely to stick to changes when I actually want to make them, instead of waiting for that magical January 1st date when I feel like I need to make them.
That being said, generally striving to live a healthier life is always a good thing, and it just happens to be on people’s minds this time of year, so I have a tasty and healthy recipe for you on this Friday morning! This cream of broccoli soup clocks in at only 110 calories for a cup, and it’s incredibly filling.
If this is what resolutions are made of, then maybe I could think about getting on board with them…
1 bunch broccoli (about 1 1/2 lb)
1/2 white onion
2 1/2 cups water
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
dash of pepper
dash of nutmeg
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
shredded Parmesan cheese, for garnish
