Recipe: Broccoli and Brown Rice Soup

This broccoli soup tastes better than it looks. My two younger kids were hesitant to eat it at first but once they got over the green color and tasted it - they didn't have any problems eating it up.

Broccoli, brown rice, onion, garlic, milk and red pepper makes this dish rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Here's the recipe:
