      I scaled this recipe down to 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup water, 1 tbsp. margarine, 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour, and 1 cup 2% milk. I used about 1/2 a bouillon cube and added a little bit of shredded cheddar, some Mrs. Dash, and a small diced potato. (So much for being light, eh?) I blended the broccoli, frozen, with the water and added the milk to the mixture and went from there. Aside from a few blunders on my part (not pre-boiling the potato), this soup turned out to be really good, and I will definitely be keeping it around and experimenting with it, perhaps adding potatoes and chicken - or maybe even bacon - to it in the future. Thanks!
