Enjoy a Tooth Friendly Recipe to Strengthen Your Bones and Teeth

It is not a good idea to chew hard or sticky vegetables or potato chips but soft cooked foods are an excellent choice for a meal. Broccoli cheese soup is a great food to have for lunch or dinner, and it contains numerous vitamins and minerals, including:
How to Make Delicious Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup
When you make soup, you need to chop the ingredients into tiny pieces before cooking it until it is tender. For this soup, you can use fresh or frozen broccoli. Melt a small amount of butter in a stockpot over low heat before adding some minced onion. Add your favorite flavor of cheese cubes such as cheddar, and after the cheese melts, add milk and a tiny amount of garlic powder. Next, add the fresh or frozen chopped broccoli to the soup mixture. While these ingredients heat on the stove, mix cornstarch with water in a bowl to add to the hot soup to thicken it. Stir the ingredients slowly while the soup becomes thicker, and serve it immediately.
