      Nice and easy soup. Reminds me of panera's recipe. I made a few changes- using 1 qt chicken stock, 1 cup half and half, 2 cups milk, 1 lb broccoli but kept the carrot and cheese the same. I chopped the broccoli fine so I only put about 3 cups in the food processor and left the rest chunky. Thanks!

      Very nice and easy! The only things I did differently was to use frozen broccoli florets and I rinsed them to defrost them and used fresh carrots and then used my mini-prep food processor to finely chop them before adding them (2 cups broccoli and 1 cup carrots after fine chopping) so I wouldn't have to "blend" the hot soup in the blender in batches. The onions I just did a fine dice by hand. I also didn't add much nutmeg, probably a 1/8 teaspoon. Really good this way! Veggies cooked very fast and probably tasted just about as good as the blender method.

      Rich and delicious. Made as written, but next time I would use a touch less nutmeg.
