Broccoli! No, I’m not joking. If your little vegling is insisting on a vegetarian or vegan diet and they don’t like broccoli, they’re in for a major reality check. Considered one of the world’s healthiest vegetables, it is jam packed with vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre and phytonutrients. Anyone on a vegetarian or vegan diet cannot ignore these miniature green trees. This soup is quick and easy to make and doesn’t even taste that much like broccoli.
