It has to have low carb content: no potatoes or pumpkin. If not tasty enough add a whole onion and chilli when frying the onion.

I have made this before but instead of sour cream added some grated low fat cheddar and allowed to melt ( do not boil once cheese is added) . Its really tasty

I guess you could also swap the broccoli for califlower and so a califloer soup
