"creamy" Broccoli Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by C and Ds Mommy

It's made with milk to keep it lower in fat, but it is a very hearty yummy soup. Goes great with a nice crusty roll, or thick slice of french bread!!

Very good, and perfect for a chilly weeknight when I wanted something on the table fast. I had about a half-cup of FF half-and-half to use up, so I used that and then the rest as directed, with skim milk. I used brown Minute Rice, and increased the garlic. This is good and filling, and I used my immersion blender instead of transferring the soup & dirtying another dish, so it wasn't completely pureed. I topped with fresh ground pepper and additional parmesan.
