This soup is unique and enjoyable in more ways than one. For starters, it makes innovative use of the stalks that are usually discarded! plus, it is a really creamy soup that is made without cream! yes, to make this low-cal i have used a combination of milk and corn flour to create the creamy feel. Take care not to strain the water after cooking, to retain the full goodness. Broccoli is, needless to say, very healthy, being rich in vitamins c and a. Drown in the flavours of this easy-to-make comforting, nutritious soup!
