Broccoli broth

Posted on July 30, 2009. Filed under: Pregnancy recipes, Starter | Tags: , |

A really quick soup to make and one which does not require to hunt for lots of ingredients to whip it up.
Broccoli is one of the best sources of folic acid. I have added this simple soup to provide for lots of folic acid in your diet which you will need in plenty during your first trimester and more importantly before you conceive. It is also rich in calcium and protein.

Preparation Time : 15 mins.
Cooking Time : 15 mins.

Serves 2.

Ingredients
1 cup broccolli, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon wheat germ
1 tablespoon cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon oil
salt and pepper to taste
Method
1. Heat the oil, add the onion pieces and sauté till the pieces are translucent.
2. Add the chopped broccoli and 1½ cups of water and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Cool.
3. Purée in a liquidiser and transfer back into a pan.
4. Add the milk, wheat germ and cheese and bring to a boil.
5. Add salt and pepper and serve hot.
Tips
Wheat germ is the outer covering of the wheat grain and is extremely rich in fibre.
Readymade wheat germ is available in packets at most health food stores.
If you cannot find wheat germ, this soup will taste just as good without it.
