Not the ordinary cream of broccoli soup! This has much more "spunk" to it. I made this with 16 oz of fresh broccoli, and 3 cups of chicken broth in place of 2 cups of broth and 1 cup of water. I used a fairly hot curry powder. Those mustard seeds added a nice flavor, too. This is a great soup for when you're bored of the "same old" cream of broccoli soup. The flavors will warm you up. Thanx for sharing this recipe!

Not as creamy as I expected.Kinda a bland. So I added more cream and spices like hot sauce, salt, pepper and garlic.
