    Rhiannon and Matt's Note:

    This easy to make, low fat soup is suitable for vegetarians & diabetics alike and freezes well. Recipe Courtesy of Australian Good Taste magazine. After blending the soup, the recipe says to transfer it to a clean saucpan to heat through, but I don't see the point of involving any more dishes than absolutely nesessary and would just return in to the same pot. :)

      I also did not make the croutons. This soup was easy and quite tastey. I made it as written, except for subbing a swirl of thick soy milk and a squeeze of lemon to my bowl in place of sour cream (I am vegan). Very good!

      Very Good! I used frozen broccoli spears instead of fresh, which worked well. I also topped it with a little fresh parmesan in addition to the sour cream. I didn't make croutons, though. Soup was enough. Thanks.
