Broccoli Soup with Fragrant Thai Spices

 

Broccoli Soup with Fragrant Thai Spices
Warming, hearty, delicious this broccoli soup is full of flavour but is also a great cleanser. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli are great for the liver and the sulphoraphane in them has also been shown to have anti-cancer benefits. Onion, garlic, ginger and herbs such as coriander and basil have great antibacterial properties and also help the cleansing process.
