      Following the directions and ingredients I had to start adding to this recipe. It tastes like bland broccoli puree (not soup, it's too thick with that much broccoli to be a soup). I had to double the cheese and keep adding more and more salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne along with a little dry mustard to try and help the cheese flavor. It was edible, but it wasn't soup, it was like a puree mash with a little broth that seeped out of the broccoli once in a while. Only one person out of four thought it was good, the rest of us agreed to look for a different recipe.

      You can't go wrong with this. It's the good old classic broccoli cheese soup. Just the right texture and flavor. Simple to make as well. We loved it on this rainy day. Thanx!
