This is really good. I didn’t blend it, so it had a slightly different consistency, but it was still yummy! Be generous with the black pepper.

I like this soup, but feel it needs something more. I added garlic with the onion & lots of salt & pepper to our bowls, but it still needs *something* we just can't put our finger on it. Bev's pic of the soup looked very thick (like mashed avocado :) ) so Matt added another 3/4 - 1 cup of stock. I'll make it again, but play with it a bit; maybe add a carrot or 2.

This is a wonderful broccoli soup! I used a 1 lb 13 oz can of butter beans and otherwise followed dicentra's directions to the letter, using my immersion blender to cream the soup. All this simple recipe needs is a little salt and pepper! Thank you, dicentra : )
