Winter's in and its chilly throughout the day...Usually the first thing that comes to my mind is soup. Nothing beats the rain and chill outside like a soup, a creamy one at that. I like to go in for soups which are v creamy, tasty but does not compromise in health.
Leek,Broccoli and Asparagus soup is one such healthy and creamy bowl of heaven. It has all the keywords which are used to denote 'Healthy' and the surprising part for all those 'broccoli' and 'asparagus' haters is that you would be surprised at the taste of this soup. I can say so, cos I am one of you. :)Give it a shot and you would be astounded.
