As Roosie said this is a great basic soup recipe that is easily adaptable to meet the tastes of the diners. Found it tasty enough to make the center of a light, healthy meal paired with a salad and pita chips. I used cauliflower with a sweet potato which gave me a smooth and creamy soup with a beautiful orange hue. To brighten the flavors I added 1/2 tsp. ginger and a pinch of nutmeg. Next time, I'll try the broccoli and a white potato with some basil and garlic. Minx, you have another winner here. Thanks.

A nice, simple recipe. I used broccoli. I sauteed the onions and some garlic with olive oil before adding other ingredients. Next time I will add some meat. Thanks for the recipe!

A nice basic recipe to use up those darn broccoli stems (I used two broccoli stems). I do very much like that it is nice and creamy without creams, as PaulaG said. I did find it a little bland, however and I think it could definitely use some spicing up or a little cheese grated in or something. It is a nice very simple soup as-is though. Thank you for posting! I may make this again, but will experiment with various flavor addtions. Thanks, FlemishMinx!

DH and I really enjoyed this soup. I used a combination of broccoli and cauliflower. Also, I used the vegetable bouillon cube. It was nice and thick without high fat creams.
