      This recipe says "soup for the soul"....and THAT it IS!! My husband and I just loved it, and it has become a very favourite our home. It is so delicious, easy and quick to make, and so, so comforting and soothing. I chop the broccoli fairly fine and then use a potato masher on it once I put the cooked broccoli in the milk mixture, and it give just the right texture for us. We like it a bit on the chunky side, but not too chunky. With a piece of homemade bread, we find this soup hearty enough for supper. Thank you Lennie for sharing it with us!

      Whenever anyone asks me to peel broccoli, I usually run.. Indeed, I did not bother with the stems, but this is just what I was looking for. Easy, and tasty. I did increase the cheese by about 50%, and it held up fine. Well worth the effort.

      I love it! I used skim milk and no-fat cheddar, but it still yields great taste. I suggest you puree bout 1/3 of the boiled broccoli and add it to the sauce. Plus, parsley and cayenne is a good way to garnish the dish. Thank you!
