This is a great soup that I got while visiting Houston. It has quickly become a family favorite!

I didn't bother with the cream and I added 2 small chopped sweet potatoes and some spicy peanut dressing and dropped the cauliflower. The added sweet potatoes recieved compliments. Be careful not to cook the broccoli too long as it will get mushy (still good though) Read More

As a lover of strong flavors I found this to be far too bland. It had a nice texture but needs some work. Read More

What a great soup. I wouldn't have thought of broccoli and peanut butter together, but this really works. The pepper flakes add just the right amount of flavor. I needed a tablespoon of butter rather than a teaspoon. Read More

Fantastic. Who knew these ingredients will combine so well. I left out the cream as I am vegan and didn't miss it. I will make it again and again. Read More

It is okay if you have some broccoli and cauliflower that you need to use for something. Read More

I didn't have quite enough nut butter so I'm looking forward to making it again with the right amount! I didn't use the flour because after the soup was finished I whizzed it all up with a hand blender, which made it very creamy and thick. This is a lovely soup and is going in my rotation. Thank you for the recipe! Also, I would like to say that I don't understand the mind set of someone who changes a recipe a lot and then gives it 3 stars. Seems petty to me. Why not make it as is first? At least then your rating would be an honest one. Read More

I'm doing a Candida cleanse and this recipe is so far my fav of the 26 I pulled from my recipe box. The only switches I made are almond butter veg stock and coconut milk for the cream. Amazing flavor. Going to make a double recipe soon and add more red pepper flakes and perhaps a bit of curry? Read More

This was surprisingly good. It was tasty spicy and lo-cal a triple win. I used 1 tbl of butter instead of tsp I think that may be a typo. Also I skipped the cream and green onion. I may try blending the soup next time to increase the "creamy" factor. Read More
