Soup Puree with Broccoli and Chicken

This bright green colored soup-purée (or cream soup) made of chicken, broccoli and some other vegies is probably the quickest to prepare soup I know.

It is also nutritious: loaded with healthy vegetables and white chicken meat, which are boiled, pureed and blended together for tasty creamy texture.

All that makes this soup very good choice not only for kids, but also for people who prefer soft food.

This soup looks quite nutritious. I will make it today. The only question I have is: is 30 min enough for the chicken to be boiled? I am so used to live it boil for at least an hour…. Thanks again for this healthy recipe.
