    Munchkin Mama's Note:

    You can have this to the table in under 30 minutes. Although it is easy and quick to prepare, you really have to be at the stove for the whole 30 minutes. It has great flavor on its own, but feel free to add some cheddar cheese or crumbled bacon to the top.

      Definately easy and really good. I think next time I'll make the white sauce and then add the saute'd onions and broccoli to the sauce instead of the other way around. I used stems chopped up well along with the florets. Just another way to use the whole broccoli. I cooked it longer than recommended because I used fresh and wanted it to be tender. I'm sure frozen would be quicker. Next time I'll probably try it with leftover Broccoli. This made a good dinner. Seems like something I could make for company. No stress - great reward! Thanks!

      I think this is the ideal "no-frills" cream of broccoli soup. It's simple, yet satisfying. I made this as written, just used fat free half and half. I was tempted to add cheese, but I didn't and was still pleased with the results. The thickness was just right and because it's not pureed like many others, there's still texture. Thanx for posting this quick and easy recipe.
