AMAZING (and super easy) Broccoli/Cauliflower Soup

Things you will need:  Magic Bullet (if you don't have one, invest in one...they are amazing for pureed soups, perfectly blended protein shakes, fresh homemade salsa, chopping veggies and more!), food processor or fine-blade blender.

1 and 1/2 cups fresh broccoli and cauliflower (I buy the organic bags in the produce isle at King Soopers - the broccoli and cauliflower are both in the same bag)
1/2 cup fat free, low sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup milk
1 garlic clove
Spices to taste (I add pepper, a pinch of sea salt and 1/2 a teaspoon of smoked paprika - mmmm!)

-  Steam broccoli and cauliflower in microwave for 1 1/2-2 minutes.  Add to processor with garlic clove, spices and chicken broth.  Puree until vegetables are smooth.  Add milk and pulse to mix
-  Serve warm with smoked paprika sprinkled over top for added color (and awesome taste!)

Nutritional Info (Makes 2 small bowls....great to serve as an appetizer or as your veggie with a meal!)
