I love this recipe from Chef Jeff’s Flip My Food, and not just because it’s absolutely delicious.This hefty, nutritious meal keeps the waistband slim and the belly full.

•    2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
•    1 medium onion, chopped
•    1 stalk celery, chopped
•    2 cloves garlic, chopped
•    1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
•    8 cups chopped broccoli, stems and florets
•    2 cups fresh spinach
•    6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
•    ½ cup half-and-half
•    ½ teaspoon salt
•    Freshly ground pepper
•    2 cups ready cooked shredded chicken
1. Heat oil in medium pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and celery and sauté until vegetables have softened about 4 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
2. Add broccoli, spinach and chicken stock to pot. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook vegetables until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Pour soup into a blender and puree in batches until smooth. Stir in half-and-half and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with shredded chicken.
