Cream of Broccoli Soup
Updated: Aug 21, 2021
I decided this weekend to try a different cream soup. My niece stayed over this weekend and thought this was the perfect opportunity. However, she was not keen on the idea of having a broccoli soup. She insisted on spinach soup as that is her favourite.
Eventually, she relented and she tried it. To her surprise, she actually liked it. It was much better than she thought. I’m glad because broccoli has lots of protein and fibre And other health benefit. This is a great soup to have in an overcast day.
