Broccoli is an all-in-one ingredient, which is a good source of nutrients like iron, folic acid, vitamins A and C, along with calcium too. The interesting veggie has a unique flavour and texture, which really please the palate. Once you develop a taste for it, you will want to keep having it often in some form or the other. And, what better way to consume this amazing veggie than in the form of a satiating and comforting soup. Combining broccoli with onions enhances its flavour, while milk improves the texture of the soup and adds a soothing element to the flavour chart. We have used low-cal milk to prepare this recipe, as excess fat inhibits the absorption of calcium. Enjoy this hearty soup for an effective calcium boost. Team up with Paneer Shavarma Wrap to create a sumptuous, satiating meal.

This is a great recipe. I also added celery while sautéing the onions to give it a good flavour.
