    duonyte's Note:

    I had bought some very nice broccoli crowns on sale, and then forgot about them. By the time I remembered, they'd started to go brown. Still, waste not, want not. I needed soup, so I cut off all the brown parts, ending up with mostly stalk, a bit of florets. It turned into a very nice soup, we thought.

      Awesome soup, hun! Made this "spur of the moment" along with Hot-Iron Grilled Cheese Sandwich. What a great dish. I did not use the tumeric... (None in the house, because I don't care for it). It was awesome, and such a great way to use up my head of broccoli that was wilting / browning. I found this recipe in the "TOTM Forum / Clever Shopping", and so happy I did. Loved it, duonyte. Hubby did, as well. Thanks for sharing.
