Thai Chicken & Broccoli Soup

There’s nothing greater than a bowl of healthy soup on a cold day that provides you all the nutrients you need in just one bowl.  Even if it is not cold outside, soup always seems to hit the spot.  This recipe is slightly modified from Elana’s Pantry.  Enjoy it with 2 to 3 sesame crackers and you have the perfect meal.

Even better, make a double batch and freeze in individual portion sizes for a fast stress-free meal after work.  Enjoy.
