I made this for my in-laws when they were visiting over the Christmas holidays. It is a very hearty soup.

very good! although, i used FOUR cups of chicken stock and cut the half and half to TWO cups..also, i was out of flour (surprise!) and so i used little experiment! plus, i threw in approximately a half head of LARGE garlic cloves into the blender with some of the soup..pretty garlicky! will let it chill in the refrigerator for a few hours before lunchtime...i also used TWO 12 oz. frozen chopped broccoli bags for easy!
