      My daughter requested broccoli cheese soup for her special birthday dinner. I made the recipe as written except for using chicken broth in place of the vegetable broth. We all loved the addition of the lemon pepper (something I did not think I would care for) however; 3 out of the 4 kids noticed after one bite that it was not my normal broccoli cheese soup...which I did not think they would pick up on. (the only difference other then the lemon pepper is I usual cook down a little chopped carrot & celery with the onion, and I thicken my soup with a corn starch slurry at the end instead of flour in the beginning.) Made and reviewed for the 56th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

      Really good soup! I loved the twist of the addition of lemon pepper! I used a gluten free thickener instead of the all-purpose flour due to dietary needs of those eating, and used chopped frozen broccoli. It was much enjoyed, and leftovers reheated well. Thanks for sharing!

      Delicious! I used frozen broccoli and chicken broth to make this and loved the end result. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
