Added to 1 cookbook   This recipe has been viewed 1995 times

Broccoli is a plant in cabbage family. It's flower head is used as a vegetable. Broccoli is commonly steamed, boiled or sauteed. It is high in vitamin c and also in dietary fiber. Long back, I had this cheesy broccoli soup and it tasted heavenly but it was very high in calories. So I made this somewhat lighter version of this soup. With a very few ingredients, this broccoli soup is easy to make.
