Pok Choy Broccoli Soup

Pok Choy Broccoli Soup

It's a good week to love green soup.  St. Patrick's Day can inspire green beer as acceptable for some, so why not green soup for those of us who love the healthy lifestyle instead?  This soup was simply a way to use up some leftovers in the refrigerator, with tasty results.  Now, how could I have made this look more attractive?   

1 cup chopped pok choy (which is baby bok choy)
1/2 cup chopped broccoli florets
3/4 cup vegetable broth

Put all ingredients into a microwave safe container.  I used my 4-cup Pyrex glass measuring cup. Cook until the vegetables are tender.  Using an immersion blender, puree to desired consistency.  I garnished it with some crushed crackers. (Garnish not included in nutritional analysis.)
