Broccoli and Potato Chowder

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

From The Simply Healthy Lowfat Cookbook, 1995, this recipe makes a comforting soup. Instead of the chicken broth & water, a similar measure of my own Chicken Broth Supreme!

Top Review by Deantini

Very healthy, filling and delish soup overflowing with flavour! I did not add the full amount of broccoli because I was worried it would be too 'broccoli' but I am sure that the soup can handle the full amount. Made for Gimme 5 Tag.
