This recipe is thick and flavorful. Simple, delicious, and quick to make. Hope that you enjoy it as much as my family does. I have added chicken to this soup, very good

I thought I found the perfect broccoli soup (Uncle Bill's #19107), but wanted to try one that used cheese. Now I have two favorite broccoli soups, and both are easy and delicious. I did substitute sharp chedder, and melted it into the white sauce; then added the sauce to the vegetable soup. While the soup tasted great that way, I then incorporated one of Uncle Bill's soup secrets--a tablespoon of soy sauce. You will not detect any soy sauce taste, but it does impart a more robust flavor. Thanks Barb, for sharing another great recipe--all yours sound good.
