I've never pureed broccoli for cream of broccoli soup, but I love it! I used vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth and didn't notice the difference. This is a fast easy recipe you can whip up during the week. This recipe won the Spirit of Betty Crocker Award. Recipe courtesy of Lisa Brannen and Betty Crocker's Best-Loved Recipes. Thank you Lisa!
