  • Heat oil in large saucepan on medium-high heat. Add carrots, celery, leeks and garlic; cook and stir 5 min. Stir in water and pepper; bring to boil.
  • Add broccoli and rice; stir. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 to 20 min. or until vegetables and rice are tender, stirring frequently.
  • Blend soup, in batches, in blender or food processor until smooth; return to saucepan. Add remaining ingredients; cook 3 to 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Substitute

Substitute 4 cups frozen or drained canned peas, chopped asparagus or 4-1/2 cups small fresh cauliflower florets for the broccoli.

Preparing Leeks

Leeks are grown in sandy soil and must be washed well before using. To prepare leeks, trim the roots and remove the dark green portions. Only the white portion of the leek is used. Chop or slice the white sections, then rinse in water to remove any soil or sand.

Nutrition Bonus

Since the dark green broccoli is high in both vitamins A and C, this creamy low-sodium soup can fit into a balanced diet. And as a bonus, the milk and Parmesan cheese team up to provide calcium while the carrots are rich in vitamin A. Eating right never tasted so good!
