A creamy, delicious soup that can be enjoyed hot during winters. Broccoli is a great way to add iron into your diet, and this soup is just the perfect way to include broccoli in your meals, especially if your family likes drinking up soups. Mildly flavoured with nutmeg and fresh pepper, this soup looks attractive because of its fresh, green colour. Serve it hot garnished with blanched broccoli florets.
