During the cooler months, Dr. Sinatra and I love to cook up a big pot of soup for supper. This particular recipe is not only delicious, but it is chock full of blood thinners like garlic and curry, as well as DIM, which has been shown to help protect against breast cancer.


Broccoli Soup
(Makes 5 servings) 

  • 5 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 lb. fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. curry powder to taste (optional)
  • Black pepper to taste

In a large pot, bring the stock to a boil over medium heat. Add the broccoli, onion, and garlic, and simmer until soft, about 30 minutes. Purée the soup in a food processor or blender, return to the pot, and add the lemon juice and pepper. For an extra kick, add the curry powder right before you purée the soup.
