Grilled Vegetable and Broccoli Soup Recipe

Perhaps you have enjoyed broccoli soup as a warming treat but this broccoli soup recipe is for a chilled broccoli and vegetable soup which makes a different but wonderful snack and is crammed with juicy grilled vegetable flavors.

This soup is made up nearly entirely of fresh vegetables with just a little oil and vinegar for flavoring, making it virtually fat free and calorie free. Some vegetable soup recipes contain a lot of cream but this one is healthy and light. The broccoli is the only ingredient left intact rather than going in the blender or food processor so it is visible in the soup and offers texture as well as color.

With some soup recipes you can use overripe vegetables or ones past their prime, and this usually applies when the soup is pureed and served hot or when there is plenty of spice or seasoning. This soup is different however. Comparable to gazpacho, the famous chilled Spanish soup, this one is delicious because of its fresh flavors, which means picking out good quality vegetables is a must.

The garlic and vinegar really bring this soup to life, complementing the vegetable flavors, and you will be able to taste these flavors in the finished soup. Serve this during the spring or summer when the weather is warm, as a refreshing lunch or appetizer which offers plenty of nutritional value. This is an unusual soup which you will love for its fresh flavors and chilled appeal.

Healthy Chilled Broccoli Soup with Garlic
Summary: A great soup for broccoli fans, this recipe is also very healthy which is another bonus. Because it is served chilled, it is perfect for even the hottest months.
