Creamy broccoli soup is not only packed with rich flavour but also contains all the goodness our bodies need. Broccoli is a great source of fibre, protein and an array of essential vitamins and minerals. Knowing that each delicious spoonful is nourishment for our cells make this soup even better!
When selecting broccoli heads for a pot of creamy broccoli soup, always look for bright green broccoli with firm stalks. Woody stems tend to become stringy when cooked and will not blend very well. Also, choose broccoli heads with compact florets as that is an indication of freshness. Yellowing or open florets is a clear indication that the broccoli is very close to its expiration date.
