Cream of Broccoli Soup

I miss the occasional cream soup, but I don’t miss the “bloat” afterward.  This soup may not be as creamy but it will satisfy the craving for cream soup without the calories, fat or bloat.  Add a little jalapeno for some kick and your taste buds and your belly will be happy.
