Notes


Keeping Healthy during the Menopause : Broccoli contains a plant chemical called sulforophane which helps keep levels of healthy oestrogen balanced in your body.

Leftovers : Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. Freeze for up to three months.

Serving Size : One serving is equal to approximately 1.5 cups of soup.

No Arrowroot Powder : You can usually find this in supermarkets but if you don't have it, use cornflour or gluten free flour instead.

More Flavor : Add fresh herbs or additional vegetables.

Make it Vegan : Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.

Nutritional Yeast : This is available in supermarkets in the form of Engevita Yeast Flakes. This contains nutritionally rich yeast which is deactivated and not live, therefore doesn't cause issues with problems such as candida. It has natural cheese like flavour.
