Broccoli Soup

Cream Of Broccoli

Cream Of Broccoli is a delicious soup and at the same time a very nutritious option for dinner. This soup is comforting and quite filling. Broccoli is packed with vitamin C and fibre. There is no wastage with this soup as the whole broccoli head, including the stalk is used to make the most of the valuable antioxidants.

Add texture and some crunch to the creamy soup by garnishing it with toasted almonds and parsley. Serve with our Cheesy Garlic Bread Sticks or Baked Sweet corn Crackers.
