This soup! Super easy. Super fast. Super healthy. Super flavorful! I threw this together a few weeks ago — I had a hankering for broccoli soup, but also wanted something relatively low on ingredients and high in healthy/tasty: enter, TURMERIC! I figured this week (post-Thanksgiving) might be a great time for this one!
Have a wonderful post-holiday week! xoxo
Turmeric Broccoli Soup
