Broccoli soup

Broccoli is a veggie that I love in any form but there a lot of people who just are unable to bring themselves to enjoy eating this versatile veggie…I think you do need to find a way to get into your system somehow because the health benefits are varied and many ! Cooked broccoli offers more benefits than raw,however I don’t mean for you to deep fry them…a light steaming or a quick stirfry or blanching will suffice !

Cooking the vegetable increases the indole content by freeing a crucial enzyme.Broccoli in addition to being high in vitamin C also contains phytochemicals-beta carotene,sulphoraphane and indoles which protect against or slow the growth of some types of cancer ! Being high in Vitamin C .it helps in the absorption of iron from eggs,meat and fish…so it’s a good side dish to have…like Orange Juice goes with eggs for breakfast !!!
I have no doubts that you will enjoy this soup…take it from me, from the age groups of 6-60 have licked the bowl clean
