this is really good! sometimes I like to puree some broccoli and have chunks as well..and use cubed, boiled potatoes instead of shredded..choice is up to you..I also like a little bit of "heat" in the seasoning..so I might add a couple dashes of hot sauce

Oh my!!!! This was yummy!!!!!! I think the recipe is missing a few steps, but we figured it out! The only thing I changed was the amount of broccoli. I used 2 cups fresh (could have added more!) and kept the liquid amount the same. The shredded potatoes were GREAT!!!! I'm getting rid of my old broccoli soup recipe!!! Thanks for the great soup!

YUM! this is a great recipe. I needed a cream of broccoli soup for a recipe I was making and I came across this one. I am so glad I did cause it was perfect for Spicy Slow Cooker Pork Chops. I did scale this down to 4 servings. I used chunks of potatoes instead of shredded as you mentioned in the description you wrote. Also I kind of changed how I prepared this recipe since I was using it in another recipe. I boiled the potatoes in with the water, onions, butter and added 2 chicken bouillon cubes for 10 minutes than added the rest of the ingredients and let simmer another 10 minutes than added to the recipe I was using. I did take out a bowl full and have for a small mid morning breakfast. Thanks so much for sharing this delicious soup! :)
