Veg Clear Soup with Silken Tofu

Soup is one great one way to eat lot of different vegetables in just one serving. This Soup recipe is just a basic veg clear soup, but very flavorful.  Through this recipe all I want to tell you is eat clear soup along with the vegetables. If you are a person who just drinks the soup and discards the vegetables, realize, you are wasting so much fiber, vitamin, and minerals. Of course home made veg clear soups are healthier than the restaurant soups where only handful of vegetables are added for that big pot with lot of added salt. In this recipe, I have used broccoli and cilantro stalks which is thrown away most of the time which has so much nutrition value too and addition of tofu increases the protein score as well. But you can make this soup with any vegetable you have. Don’t forget to add that liberal dash of lemon juice to pop up the freshness while serving. Make soups often at home and enjoy along with the vegetables. Your body will be very happy, I tell you. Good health!
