Six 1 1/3-cup servings

Apple and potato cut the cabbagy taste of the broccoli, making a rich, full-flavored soup that even a confirmed broccoli-phobe might like.


  • 5 cups chicken stock or canned fat-free, low-salt chicken broth
  • 1 yellow onion, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tart green apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small potato, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 cups chopped broccoli (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup non-fat plain yogurt
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Lemon sliced or chopped mint leaves for garnish


In a large saucepan, bring 2 cups of the stock to a boil. Add the onion and simmer over medium heat until the onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the apple and potato and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Add the broccoli, curry, ginger and the remaining 3 cups of stock. Simmer until broccoli is tender, about 10 minutes. Purée the soup in batches in a blender. Whisk in the yogurt and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. To serve, garnish with lemon slices or chopped mint leaves. The soup is good hot or cold.
