      I cooked this soup yesterday, it was quick for soup :) I wish I had cooked the broccoli longer after I had it all together, and maybe a little less dill, but I'm not much for dill in soup... other than that, I was satisfied with it. I had to make my boyfriend STOP "tasting." It was very aromatic.. my boyfriend claimed it smelled like "Stuffing seasoning." I don't think so, but so he said :) It was a very new and unique taste, so thanks for sharing! :)

      I didn't have some of the ingredients, so I made a few changes, but it still sat wonderfully in my tummy! I substituted spring onion stalks for the celery, added more onions for the garlic, and omitted dill and the chives. I used water and not stock, but it was still hearty enough to make a satisfying dinner along with toasted whole-wheat bread. I'll definitely make this one again.
