Looking for a quick and easy meal to make in minutes? Quick & Easy Soup with Broccoli is a great way to put a simple meal on the table in less than 15 minutes! When you run out of ideas on what to make as a quick meal for yourself or for your family, making this quick & easy soup with frozen broccoli should come to mind every time! Loaded with broccoli florets and 3 simple ingredients (not counting salt and pepper) I will show you how to make this most delicious quick & easy soup in your own kitchen!
For me, soup is a meal! Even though the weather is warming up, most of us will stop making soups by now, but I continue to make them all through the warmer months. Why?
Soup is not only one of the easiest meals to make, it’s adaptable, especially when making it with whatever vegetables (fresh or frozen) you may have on hand.
I tend to keep a variety of frozen vegetables in my freezer, especially for those days when I need to whip up something quick – like this soup.
Making a simple soup as a meal is always better than any frozen processed packaged foods you may heat up in the microwave. Most frozen processed meals ( if you look carefully at the ingredients) are filled with junk or fillers like high fructose corn syrup, or palm and soybean oils which are not very healthy.
How to Make this Quick & Easy Soup with Broccoli:
I like to mix half water with half vegetable broth in most of my soups, simply because I can control the amount of sodium in the vegetable broth.
For this recipe, simply pour equal amounts of water and broth into a medium size soup pot and turn on high heat. Bring broth to a full boil.
In the meantime, open a package of frozen broccoli florets and transfer them to a colander. Rinse the broccoli under cold water for a few seconds, then allow them to drain.
When the broth comes to a full boil, toss in the broccoli florets and tiny pasta of your choice, and cover with a lid. Allow the soup to come to a full boil once a again. Then lower the heat to low, and allow the soup to simmer for about 5 to 6 minutes. Both broccoli and pasta will cook and be ready at the same time.
Next, give it a stir and add in some salt and pepper to taste. When pasta is al-dente and tender to the bite, turn off the soup and serve in individual bowls with grated Parmesan cheese at the table. And it’s done!
Best of all, it’s made with one easy pot for clean up! This quick and easy soup with broccoli is great when your hunger strikes at anytime. It’s a good idea to keep cartons of vegetable broth and packages of tiny pasta in the pantry along with bags of frozen broccoli florets in your freezer.
Make this Soup your Own!
You may use chicken broth instead of vegetable. And, if you prefer, you can use the entire carton of the broth instead of mixing half with water, as I did.
Toss in your favorite mix of frozen veggies. I used a 10-ounce package of frozen broccoli florets.
Toss in your favorite tiny pasta, or gluten-free pasta.
Add some fresh herbs to the mixture like fresh parsley or basil for more flavoring.
Make this soup with leftover steamed broccoli from the night before! You only need about 1 to 2 cups of broccoli or any vegetable you prefer.
Soups like our Easy Chicken Wonton Soup is similar to this one. I tossed in mini frozen wontons at the last few minutes before serving. Easy-peasy!!
Quick & Easy Soup with Broccoli is full of flavor and perfect for all ages, including the little ones! Making it is so easy - even for those who don't prefer to cook!
