Chicken- Broccoli Soup

Chicken- Broccoli Soup

A balanced single dish diet meal for non-vegetarians!….Broccoli known to be a member of the cabbage family and a close relative of cauliflower, packs more nutrients than any other vegetable. Broccoli contains large amounts of vitamin C and beta carotene which are important antioxidants.

I used to make this dish for my family when we prefer to have an easy-to-prepare, easy-to-digest same time tasty and nutritious dinner. Still it can be served as a starter or as a side dish to boiled rice. The rich presence of Broccoli makes this meal fiber rich and hence easy to digest.
