Broccoli has always been one of my favorite vegetables, and this Broccoli Soup is a delicious way to enjoy it. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and calcium, broccoli is a powerhouse veggie that will help keep you healthy. We typically serve it plain as a side dish, but it’s nice to have other options to enjoy. If your children are hesitant about broccoli, add a bunch of grated cheese to this recipe and they may surprise you by asking for seconds.
This soup freezes well. Store it in 2 to 4 cup containers and grab one on your way out to work. Alternately, you can heat it up in the morning and put it in your child’s lunchbox for school.
