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.

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!

This soup was awesome! I didn’t change any of the ingredients, but I did change some of the prep. Before I added the flour mixture, I whisked in slowly 1 cup of the chicken broth to thin it. Then whisked in the thinned mixture slowly to the large pot. I also used an immersible hand blended to puree the broccoli before finishing step 3. Thanks for the awesome recipe!

This soup is fabulous. I made it exactly as written and it is the best cream of broccoli I have ever had. Creamy enough, salted enough, I can't get enough.

One of my favorites yet. Very simple and easy, also satisfying. I added a bit of cheddar cheese to my liking and it was perfect. You can add carrots along with the broccoli if you're a veggie person. Just a tip. Anyways, thanks for sharing!

This soup is FANTASTIC!! I halved the recipe and used 4 chicken bouillon cubes to 3 cups of water for the chicken broth. I was needing a can of broccoli soup for a recipe I was making and didn't have any in my pantry so I decided to find a recipe and found this one. So glad I did! It is delicious! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe! It is a keeper I will use many times!

Amazingly easy and delicious. I substituted shallots for the onions for a more subtle and delicate flavor. Outstanding soup!
