Found lots of broccoli on sale. Needless to say made this as a first course for friends. They loved it. My hubby who usually hates anything green even said it was good. Oh my, this may have to go in a record book if there is one for compliments.

"VERY" yummy! 2 things I did differently. 1. I added the celery, onion and garlic to "3" TBL of butter and omitted it at the end. Added the broth and broccoli and simmered 5 min.I wisked 5 TBL of flour to 3 cups of milk and then added to soup. Brought it to a boil, then simmered for 5 or so minutes till broccoli was tender and flour was cooked. 2. I also did not puree the vegetables. I prefer having the pieces of broccoli in the soup. Delicious... Thank You!

Quick, easy, tasty, and my five year old ate it up. I did use real butter, extra garlic, and I peeled the stems and used them also. Also, fat free half and half works wonders! Thanks for a great basic recipe!

I've had this in my favorites for a while and finally made it tonight. It was so good! Not bland at all, I barely salted it and it was perfect. Definetly a keeper!
