Greetz, and welcome to Healthy Helpings TV! This week host Michelle Koen is showing a fantastic creamy broccoli soup that has a lot more panache than your old canned "cream-of" style soups. Besides some nice herbs, there is a bit of tomato and a startling but zippy splash of citrus, as well!
Michelle is busy moving to her new studio in preparation for the next episode, but she's asked us to remind you that this recipe is not only a quick, easy meal for later, but an excellent source of potassium. Potassium becomes more and more important in our diet as sodium becomes more and more prevalent in commercially prepared foods we might eat.
Good health from all of us at GNMHealth!
