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!

Delicious and easy soup recipe! I had broccoli I needed to to use and was looking for something easy....this definitely fit the bill! I doubed the recipe and will be having it for dinner again tomorrow! It is so good. I did add about a cup of cheddar cheese to the doubled recipe and I used only 1 cup skim milk and replaced the other cup with about 1 cup non fat greek yogurt. Delicious! Topped with parm cheese! This will be my go to recipe on winter nights when time is limited....and even when it's not! Thanks for this great recipe!

This is is very good base for broccoli soup. I did change a few things though...I added 1# of Velveeta and 1/8 tsp. of nutmeg. Sometimes I even add 2 cups of cauliflower to change it around a bit. I wanted more broth so I used 4 cups of broth instead of 2.

This was great! I did end up adding in a few spices as I found it a tad bland on it's own. But for a quick soup, this really fit the bill! Thanks for sharing!
