Broccoli has always been one of my favorite vegetables, and this Broccoli Soup is a delicious way to enjoy it. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and calcium, broccoli is a powerhouse veggie that will help keep you healthy. We typically serve it plain as a side dish, but it’s nice to have other options to enjoy. If your children are hesitant about broccoli, add a bunch of grated cheese to this recipe and they may surprise you by asking for seconds.
This soup freezes well. Store it in 2 to 4 cup containers and grab one on your way out to work. Alternately, you can heat it up in the morning and put it in your child’s lunchbox for school.

In a large pot, sauté the scallions in the olive oil over medium heat until soft. Add the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds.
Add the chives, broccoli, and broth. Bring just to a boil, then simmer gently for 25 to 30 minutes until the broccoli is tender.
Use an immersion blender to puree the soup. Stir in the milk and salt, and taste the soup to see if it needs additional seasoning.
