The Broccoli Broth is a really quick soup to make, and one which does not require you to hunt for umpteen ingredients. Despite the minimal amount of ingredients, it has a fantastic flavour mainly due to the teamwork of broccoli with onions, and a soothing texture due to the addition of milk. Broccoli is one of the best sources of antixodants like vitamin A and folic acid, which makes it a wonder food during Pregnancy . You will need plenty of folic acid not only during your first trimester, but also before you conceive, so you can recommend this recipe to your friends who are planning for a child. Thanks to the addition of milk, this recipe is also rich in calcium and protein.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the onion and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes or till the onions turn translucent.
- Add the broccoli and 1½ cups of water and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Blend the mixture in a mixer to a smooth purée.
- Transfer the purée back into the same deep non-stick pan, add the milk, salt and pepper, mix well and bring to boil.
- Serve immediately.
