It was yummy following the recipe but I did end up modifying it. I added one can of chicken broth and some garlic salt. I also added more broccoli and a little more cheese to balance it. Family loved it! Read More

I started by using 1/2 stick butter dicing 2 small onions & a tablespoon of minced garlic and sauteed that for about five minutes. Cut up fresh broccoli and added that - cooked another five to ten minutes. Put a whole block of Velveeta a can of Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken soup and four cups of milk. Added seasoning to taste. Super good!!! Read More

So thick and creamy! Followed it to the T and my bf says he could eat it everyday. I personally would have to lighten it up a little and so tmw I will add a can of chx broth to reheat. Added garlic in w the onions. It's a great base so you can customize it maybe add some other veggies or potatoes. Went from 4 to 5 stars because of that it is a thick tasty basic soup Read More

I know I shouldn't give 5 stars if I changed it but this was awesome! Instead of butter I cooked 4 slices bacon in my soup pot until crunchy. I removed the bacon to drain grease & crumbled bacon for a garnish. I reserved 2 tbls bacon grease & used that to cook the onions added the flour & cooked till flour was brown then used skim milk. I cooked cauliflower in a 1 1/2 cups lo sodium chicken stock till tender & added that (stock & all) to my milk/onion broth. Pureed & served w/the crumbled bacon YUM! Read More
