Listed as the BEST Broccoli Cheese soup on the SOmersizing website, reviewers seem to love this one. I saw some members add in mushrooms, garnish with bacon pieces, green onions and even a dollop of sour cream! Others have added chopped chicken to it. Let me know if you try this nice Somersizing soup - it doesn't feel like dieting. ;) Can't wait to try this one. (Posted as listed, servings and time are estimates)

I guess Somersizing is a low carb diet not low fat or calorie diet? LOL. NO, this is not much of a DIET soup, imho, lol. But it IS delicious! And easy. The only thing I varied was instead of busting up a pound of bacon, I substituted leftover bacon drippings for the butter. And I used the whole can of chicken broth. I also pureed the whole thing with my stick blender. I got exactly 4 soupbowls from this recipe. Made for the Aussie Swap 10/08.
