Spicy Broccoli Soup

Ordinarily bland, broccoli soup gets a spicy makeover in this quick-to-make recipe. A pinch of chili powder and a dash of hot sauce add just enough heat to wake your taste buds. Serve with crusty whole-grain or gluten-free bread for a filling, fiery lunch.

Browse the Vitacost Spice Store for organic chili powder and other spicy ingredients to add to your soup.
