Made this soup up today as I wanted to make a broccoli soup that avoided the usual roux thickener. It is so delicious that my family has asked me to make another pot tomorrow! The spices add a 'barely-there' subtleness. If you like your soup more heartily-spiced, just add more.

  2. Puree the soup in a blender and return to pot. Add half and half and the cheese and stir until the cheese has melted into the soup.
