Healthy Broccoli Soup Recipe



Broccoli soup is to do list for quite sometimes. It is quite rare to find broccoli in my place. So whenever i see them i used to pick couple of them and try new recipes using it. Each time i will think of making soup using them but i was a bit worried how will it taste and i kept on postponing. Finally one of my best buddy jofy from foodieadamcookieeve shared her version of broccoli soup which made me try my own spin on it. I made this soup very healthy with no cream or butter. And it taste simply delicious..



This soup is a great recipe for toddlers, so healthy and they will love it. When you are making this for kids, add butter instead of oil and cream instead of milk. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 mins

  3. @Ankita Suman u can use cauliflower. if you want to remove milk, just add few pieces of potatoes when cooking. potatoes add nice creamy texture. U can add some cream too
