Winter is soup season! Soups are so versatile, quick and easy to make. This is my go-to winter meal, it makes for an easy dinner or warming lunch. The cashews add a subtle creaminess to this soup and help to make it more satiating.
Broccoli is a nutritional super star, and this soup ensures a big serving. Broccoli is rich in vitamin C, which is important for a healthy immune system and glowing skin, and contains high levels of vitamin K — a nutrient needed for optimal bone health. Broccoli also contains chromium, a mineral essential for healthy blood sugar level control. One of the most amazing elements of broccoli is that is contains a phytonutrient called sulforaphane, which helps the liver to produce the enzymes it needs for efficient detoxification.
