This was quick,easy and tasty. Thanks for sharing
I made this for myself for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly as written. This was very easy to make and was rather tasty.
I loved this soup. Surprisingly enough, my broccoli-hating family did, too. I don't boil in plastic (long story) so I microwaved my broccoli. I also put 1/3 of the broccoli through the food processor to make it small enough that my picky son couldn't fish it out. Evidently, I didn't need to worry: he ate his entire bowl and asked for seconds. Thank you, Chris!!!!
