Yummy soup!!! I made this as written, except for adding some black pepper, for my lunch today. I am also not a huge broccoli fan but love broccoli soups. I liked that this is a lower fat version and uses a potato as the thickener. I did use 2% milk and opted to top it with some cheddar cheese, yum!! I used my small Ninja blender/chopper and it really purified the soup, so next time I would use something less powerful or only add part of the soup to the blender, so I would have some chunks/texture in the soup. Thanks for sharing another yummy recipe BK. Made for Went to the Market Tag Game.

I think the parboiling helps keep the lovely green color for this soup. I probably would add more potato next time, for just a bit more body to the soup, and perhaps add some additional herbs - just a personal preference. Topped with croutons and shredded cheddar, this warmed us up on a cold evening.
