This broccoli soup made of chicken breast and vegetables. I added the ranch dressing at the end, which brought the unique flavor to the soup.
In 2 quarts of water bring to a boil chicken breast, skim off the foam that formes on the top.
Add carrot, ginger, couple of bay leaves and half of onion.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is tender.
Meanwhile, heat 3 table spoons of oil in a skillet and saute remaining onion, carrot and red pepper, until slightly tender. Add minced garlic and continue saute just until it releases the fragrance.
Add potato and vegetables to the soup. Cook for 15 minutes, until potato is tender.
Add broccoli and ranch dressing and turn the heat off.
Discard bay leaves. Serve soup hot with toast of bread or croutons. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
