This is a old family favorite that I have updated. I have used white potatoes, red potatoes with skins on, and sweet potatoes, and substituted mushrooms for the carrots. It's a very versatile recipe.

  • Place broccoli over boiling water in a pot fitted with a steamer basket, and steam 5 minutes, or until tender but firm. Spoon into the soup to serve.

This was pretty good soup. The flavor was quite good but could have used something more. I wonder about adding cheese to it? Also I added flour to thicken it because it was not very creamy as I tend to like. Read More

I used Mrs. Dash for the non-salt seasoning and it was very strong. My kids were not real fond of it and I really wasn't either. Read More

Excellent. Minimal changes; I don't typically measure seasonings in soup...I used 2% instead of soy milk...and I did not add broccoli I was looking for a more traditional soup so I did add about six slices of browned and crumbled bacon (more for my man's tastes than mine I guess). Served with toast super simple. Read More

I'm giving this recipe 4 stars mostly due to the changes I made to mine. It was a good base recipe though. I used Russet potatoes peeled & chopped. I omitted the carrot. I used 4 cloves of fresh garlic chopped Omitted the Italian seasoning and used fresh black pepper instead I used skim milk instead of soy milk and I first made a roux with flour & butter. Also omitted the broccoli. OK I made A LOT of changes. This was delicious. Read More

This was pretty good but I made some revisions. I didn't have salt less herb blend or Italian seasoning so I opted for salt pepper thyme parsley flakes and 4 cloves of garlic. I also eyeballed about 2 cups of pre cut broccoli into the crock when putting everything else in. I let cook on high for 5 hours ish then added half and half. I'm not sure how much I eyeballed it. Probablly 1.5c. I know that sounds like a lot but I'm going for a creamier soup. I then thickened it with some corn starch as well. Added a final dash of salt pepper and thyme to tAste and let thicken for a half hour. I served hot with Parmesan cheese on top. Oh yeah. I also used 3 carrots and 1 onion.:) will be making again. Thanks! Read More

This was pretty good....I did make some changes. I omitted the celery and broccoli while adding some crushed red pepper flakes and bacon. This soup is very versatile. I think next time I will add flour to thicken it and red onions. Read More
