      Well you SHOULD try this soon because it's absolutely delicious! I used fresh broccoli, water instead of broth and dried parsley, and it turned out very flavourful, hearty and creamy! This also freezes really well, so it's a great recipe to make LOTS of! Thanks!

      Superb soup! I used fresh broccoli, chicken broth and fresh basil and parsley. I had some fat free half-and-half that needed to be used so I added about 1/4 cup of that. This soup is soooo creamy, the perfect texture. I could live on this soup, it's that good.

      Really good, simple and quick recipe. I used veggie broth and wasn't all that happy when I tried my first bite and the soup tasted really bland to me. I then realized that I hadn't added any salt, whoops! It tasted better with the salt, also added a bit more vinegar and a tiny bit of nutmeg. I love how healthy this soup is. I'm not a fan of heavy creamy, cheesy soups, so this recipe is a real find. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
