This was a really great homemade soup. I shredded my carrots instead of chopping them and added a bit more pepper - truly delicious!!

I liked this soup but I felt that it was over seasoned and a bit heavy. The beauty of making soup from scratch is that you don't have to use that much sodium. The soup base was way overpowering as was the soy sauce, and I didnt like the sweetness the carrots added. You could barely taste the subtle flavor combination of garlic, onion, and broccoli that are so signature in cream of broccoli soup. This recipe is great if you love flavor packed foods, but I cook to avoid foods like this, so I was pretty disappointed overall. A tasty soup for those who can't taste. Don't make this soup unless you want cream of broccoli with a flare.

THE MOST DELICIOUS SOUP we have ever tasted. We've made it twice now- once substituting 1 cup cream and 1 cup milk for the half and half, and the second time using evaporated milk in an atempt to be more healthy (I don't know what half and half is- I don't think we have it in Australia). I say forget being healthy and go for the cream. It was still fantastic either way, though.

How come I don't uncles with recipes like this ;-) It was delicious and satisfying on a cold winter night. Yum! The only small change I might try next time is to reduce the carrots to 2 or 3 since the color was a little bit too "orangey", but that could have been due to my definition of "large" :-) Thank you.

As with all Uncle Bill recipes, this one is delicious. Four tablespoons of chicken soup base seemed like it might make very salty soup, but I have learned to trust Bill's culinary instincts. So glad I didn't improvise--the flavor was perfect if you follow Bill's exact directions. MichelleAnne's suggestion about using a stick blender was very helpful too. So easy, so quick, so good.

As a family broccoli is probably our favorite green vegetable so I was excited to make this. I have never made cream of broccoli soup, only broccoli cheddar soup so I was hesitant would we like just Broccoli. I made only minor changes like less vegetable soup base do to salt and I used whole milk. To start off it is the most beautiful color green, and then when I took the first bite it was bliss, so velvety smooth I can only describe it as Sensational. I will make this again and again maybe try a different way of thickening it up, for friends that can’t have flour. Thanks for another great health soup.

Uncle Bill always come through! I had alot of broccoli that needed to be cooked...soup was another way to sneak veggies into the kids! I added a small diced potato to help thicken the soup (omitted the flour and water), used some ready made broth and used my stick bender to puree the soup. Do not omit the soy sauce and black pepper, the take the flavours to another level!! Thanks, Michelle
