This is a great creamy soup with tons of flavor! I liked the salmon and broccoli together and topped it with a parmesan/romano blend. I used all dried spices since that is what I had on hand; also had some heavy cream to use up so used 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream. Was perfect for the rainy/snowy gloomy day we had. Made for Zaar Stars.

  3. Whisk in the broth and milk, then add the sweet potato, bay leaf, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are just tender, about 8 minutes.
  5. Add the salmon and broccoli and simmer until the salmon is cooked through and the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes more.
