Tips
• You can use canned Vegetable broth or Chicken broth.
• You can prepare homemade Vegetable broth by adding any vegetables ( beans, carrot, cauliflower, corn, broccoli, cabbage or any) in 3-4 cups of water and required salt in medium flame for 15-20 mins. With a hand blender, blend it for few secs then filter it. Homemade vegetable broth is ready.
• Dont over blend the Broccoli. It’s more tastier to have crunchy Broccoli’s inside the soup.
