Well, all the parts are perfect in this Chicken and Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe. I mean, what is there in this soup that is not to like? Chicken, broccoli and cheese are all fabulous food and great complements to each other. Can you imagine any one turning this soup down? Serve it with a great big piece of thick dark bread to dunk in to a bowl of some of this soup, steaming hot. And the nice thing is, even if the list of ingredients seems long, it is a simple soup to make. And there are some really nutritious ingredients included here.

The recipe includes two members of the allium family, onions and garlic. Both are very nutritious foods, but garlic is especially good. The allium in the garlic oxidizes when it is exposed to air, but both heat and vinegars or lemons will destroy this important anti-oxidant, so when you mince it, let the garlic sit for a few moments to allow the alliinase to begin working. This way you get the maximum antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of this great food. Garlic also has potential to help regulate fat cells. Obesity is beginning to be understood as a problem with inflammation. Garlic has a unique capacity to help regulate the formation of fat cells in our body through an anti-inflammatory component. That means garlic might help our bodies not develop new fat cells, and keep us thinner. The research here is still new, and we have a lot to learn, but garlic is a great food for this reason and many others.

Cheese, broccoli and chicken offer all kinds of great nutrients for us. Cheese provides calcium, magnesium and all the goodness of a dairy product. Broccoli is one of the best veggies you could eat, chock full of vitamins and minerals as well as important anti-oxidants that help protect blood cells. Chicken is full of protein and a great lean source of protein. Together, these three ingredients offer a delicious and nutritious combination. This is a great soup that the kids will happily eat, and that you can be happy to give to them for any meal you have in mind. Try this recipe soon.
