Lessons learned with broccoli soup

 

 

 

Today I decided to take on the task of making my first pot of Clean Eating broccoli soup. I combined ideas from  Weight Watchers, Skinnyt Taste and my own version of broccoli soup. Needless to say my excitement quickly desolved as I gave life to this watery,tasteless soup that did nothing but feed my families eagerness to hit up Wendy’s! I was not giving up though….I wanted good soup and I was getting it! So I made some alternations and I can honestly tell you it turned out to be a success! 

My learnings with this soup-

1-When your making a healthier soup option,cook it in a slow cooker to allow the soup to thicken more and really pull from the flavours you add.

2-Add hot sauce! It gives it a little zesty zing

3-Quinoa is a great protein option and it helps thicken your soup

Do you have any helpful soup tips? I always love to learn something new…..
