AMAZING. I have never made soup before (of any kind) and I was craving broccoli soup. We just purchased a Ninja Processor (umm if you don't have one - GO BUY ONE!! it is spectacular!!) and I wanted to try something new with it. Okay - seriously - such a great soup. It was easy to make and tasted spectacular. I've always had cheese in my broccoli soup (when buying it at restaurants) but I never thought of putting a dollop of sour cream in it. That really set it off. I also added a bit more garlic that suggested.
Try it! You won't be disappointed.

Another soup recipe from Smurfetta! Again, a hit. Loved it and can't get enough. I made this for our ladies club meeting and they did too. Keep up the good work.
