It is pretty satisfying and tastes good. I added a cup of minced ham to add a little more protein and flavor. I just added garlic powder since I didn't have a garlic granules on hand. Read More

This soup was amazing! So rich, delicious, and satisfying. The portion size is small since this recipe makes 6 servings, but it's so thick and creamy that I was fully satiated. I substituted white onion for the shallots since I didn't have any on hand, and powdered garlic for the garlic granules. I also did one more step of pureeing the soup in my magic bullet after it was cooked. I definitely recommend that if you like a creamier texture, and even the taste of the broccoli blends better into the soup. Read More

This was great. I doubled the recipe. I riced a fresh head of broccoli by putting it through the cheese grater blade of my cuisinart. I added a boullion cube for a bit more flavor other than that it was made as written. I did simmer the soup for about 10 minutes as I needed the fresh broccoli to soften. And I didn t have xantham gum so I served it as is which made it a thin soup but the cream and butter and cheese make it VERY satisfying. Read More
