Broccoli Soup


I steamed some fresh broccoli and accidentally overcooked it. I decided to turn it into soup, and that was a great idea! I simply added 4 cups of vegetable broth and some spices and let it simmer down. Then I used my potato masher to mash it all up. It was heavenly. PB loved it too! I had the bowl below and another half bowl.

I also made some baked chicken breast with artichoke hearts, Near East tomato lentil couscous, and steamed spinach. It was a great and healthy meal!!!! I had about 2 oz of chicken, 3/4 cup couscous, and 1/2 cup spinach.
