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.

I love broccoli be it in pasta, salad or soup. And this soup is also one my favourites. Simple to make and pepped up with just salt and pepper. The milk gives the creaminess without the use of cream so all the more healthy.
