Broccol-Wee Soup


We're big fans of soup in this house -- and I mean all of us. I love anything with vegetables, Kenya thinks drinking soup out of a cup is a blast and my husband is into anything that's healthy and keeps his waistline in check. Therefore, this recipe for broccoli soup fits the bill for all of us. You can even serve it to a 10-12 month old if you leave out the lemon juice.

Broccoli should be a regular food in everyone’s diet because it's a super veggie. It's packed with vitamins A and C, calcium and soluble fiber plus it's available year round. Even for kids that turn their noses up at vegetables, broccoli is one you can usually get them to eat because of it's mild flavor. I usually make a big batch of this soup because I like to freeze a few servings to have for another day. The only trouble is that it's usually gone before it ever makes it to the freezer!
