Broccoli and parsley tomato broth

     I have read about the benefits of parsley and decided to make it a habit at my home.Its great for removing toxins from the body and cleans the kidneys too.Good for gall bladder and kidney stones,arthritis,weight loss.....list is endless.And so I make a light broth each night before dinner and it tastes great and serves as a great appetizer.I use a base and then I add vegetables of choice like broccoli,mushroom,cauliflower or even just bell peppers.Try this lovely soup.
