Broccoli Soup with Goats Cheese

broccoli soup

This broccoli soup recipe is great for warming yourself up on a cold, damp November day.

Broccoli is a fantastic pick -me -up.  It is a very good source of dietary fibre,  vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, choline, potassium and copper. Broccoli is also a good source of  omega-3 fatty acids, and some studies seem to suggest that it may have some benefit in preventing cancerous changes in cells.

Goat’s cheese is high in calcium like many dairy products, but it is easier on the digestion than cow’s milk products and can sometimes be tolerated by those who are lactose intolerant.
