Tasty Tuesday-Broccoli Soup & Toasted Rice Cakes

Indulge in the delightful creaminess of our heart-healthy Broccoli Soup, designed to tantalize your taste buds!

I served this delightful Broccoli Soup with Rice Cakes at our very first Sunny Dawn Acres Health Retreat. One of the participants asked if I had ever had Rice Cakes Toasted. I answered “No.”

Intrigued, we all had to give it a try! It quickly became a beloved addition to our regular menu.
