This turned out to be a thick & hearty cream soup. Everyone loved it. (I saute ed onion with the garlic for more flavor) I used the leftover soup to pour over linguini for a quick supper the next night it was delicious. Read More

My husband and I thought this soup was awful. I even added more cheese to it and still didn't have any flavor. Would not make this again. Read More

Quite easy and pretty quick too! Perfect for a wintery day. I also cut up and used the broccoli stalks. I would recommend using a low-sodium broth to reduce to salty taste. A spoon of sour cream would also be nice to add on top when serving. Read More

this was quick to make and turned out pretty yummy.i pretty much followed the recipe exactly except i added about 3 tbsp of parmesan cheese. the soup ended up being a little too thick so i added about a cup of milk while it was still in the food processor. i also set aside about 1/2 a cup of the cooked broccoli to add to stir in before serving.

Yum yum!! I love this recipe!! I added some salt to it and it's fantastic! I didn't blend the broccoli because I like it quite chunky. Also I had no chicken broth so I replaced it with the same amount of vegetable stock and it's just great! A friend at work loved the smell tried it and is making it for himself tonight! Thank you!

I liked this. I used leftover cooked rice and a few other random leftover veggies (onions carrots cauliflower)since I didn't have enough broccoli. Worked well. I just added the rice towards the end. You definitely need to add more broth and add spices if you don't want it to be too bland. I like that it doesn't call for velveeta or heavy cream. Blending the rice gave it a creamy consistency almost as if I added milk. I thought that was different. I will probably make it with leftover veggies and rice again to help clean out the fridge.

I'm always looking for good recipes that don't use milk since my husband is lactose intolerant and can't do straight milk in a recipe. This recipe hit the spot. I added a little extra cheese and a dash of oregano pepper and cayenne pepper. I cut the green part off of the green onions and put it on top of the soup and put the white part in with the garlic. A nice thick soup! Read More

I added an onion and used brown rice. This was delicious. I only pureed half so I would have some texture. As with any recipe I added salt and pepper to taste. Will make again. Read More
