Broccoli Soup

I made this with a dollop of herby garlic cream cheese and some hard bread (knäckebröd) with thin slices of cheese to dip in. Went down well with M and my brother.

Broccoli Soup
Serves: 6

750 g broccoli
1 1/2 onions
2 vegetable stock cubes
3 cloves garlic
250 ml milk
300 g potato
500 ml water
1 tsp becel light, or any other low cal margerine
salt and pepper to taste

Chop the onions and garlic and soften with the margarine.
Add in half the water and a stock cube. Once the stock cube has disolved, add in the diced and peeled potatoes.
Once the potatoes are soft, add in the rest of the water, the final stock cube, and the broccoli. Cover with a lid and leave to simmer for 15 minutes, or until the broccoli has softened.
Blend the contents of the pan with a bullet/hand/blender/blender. Then return to the pan and add the milk, stirring continually. Season to taste and enjoy!
