Broccoli Soup

Sometimes you are in the mood for healthy food that also warms your tummy. This is for one of those times...

Broccoli Soup with Brown Rice
2-3 heads of broccoli
1 small onion
1 can of white beans, drained and rinsed
2 portions of veggie broth (cubes or what have you)
1/2 c. milk

1 1/2 c. brown rice
water to cover

In a large stock pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the chopped broccoli, onion, beans, and veggie bouillion.

In another pot, boil some water and add the rice. Cook for 40 minutes or so, until it is done.

When the broccoli is starting to get soft, blend the soup in a blender, about 3 cups at a time. Be careful! It can get very hot!

Return soup to pot, and keep blending, until it is all blended. (wow, I'm great with the details here!) Add the milk after it is all incorporated together.

Serve over brown rice, with salt and pepper to taste, or maybe some cheese on top.
