A broccoli and tomato soup that is thick, creamy and delicious. The bright colour should perk your winter up too!
I wanted a dish that combined tomatoes and broccoli and together they are a great combination of antitoxidants and phytochemicals. So the easiest thing to do was to make a soup out of them!
The result with a thick tasty soup. This would be a good way to sneak broccoli into your loved one's diet. They will never know!
