"You can have this to the table in under 30 minutes. Although it is easy and quick to prepare, you really have to be at the stove for the whole 30 minutes. It has great flavor on its own, but feel free to add some cheddar cheese or crumbled bacon to the top."

"I think this is the ideal "no-frills" cream of broccoli soup. It's simple, yet satisfying. I made this as written, just used fat free half and half. I was tempted to add cheese, but I didn't and was still pleased with the results. The thickness was just right and because it's not pureed like many others, there's still texture. Thanx for posting this quick and easy recipe."
"Definately easy and really good. I think next time I'll make the white sauce and then add the saute'd onions and broccoli to the sauce instead of the other way around. I used stems chopped up well along with the florets. Just another way to use the whole broccoli. I cooked it longer than recommended because I used fresh and wanted it to be tender. I'm sure frozen would be quicker. Next time I'll probably try it with leftover Broccoli. This made a good dinner. Seems like something I could make for company. No stress - great reward! Thanks!"
"I changed servings for 2-3 servings, this recipe turned out a little too thick so I added more whole milk and it was absolutely delicious!! Very easy rexipe."
"Was simple and wonderful!!! Thanks for posting!"
"This recipe was amazing!! <br/><br/>I didn't have any half and half so I just used 35% creme and milk. <br/><br/>again, this was amazing, everybody looovvveeddd it :-)! <br/><br/>I'll make it again soon, that's for sure!<br/><br/>No more crying over the fact that i can't get it at tim hortons or subway...I can make my own now!"
"This was a great recipe. I always like to add to these and see what I come up with, but I like to have a really good starting recipe which this was. It was excellent as it is. On my modified recipe I added celery, spinach, garlic and olive oil to the onion sauté then added cubed chicken breast to the soup when I added in the broccoli. It was a big hit. Definitely going into my personal recipe book."
"Very easy and very tasty!"
"Great and easy, put the broccoli in a blender for consistency."
"This soup was awesome! I didnâ€™t change any of the ingredients, but I did change some of the prep. Before I added the flour mixture, I whisked in slowly 1 cup of the chicken broth to thin it. Then whisked in the thinned mixture slowly to the large pot. I also used an immersible hand blended to puree the broccoli before finishing step 3. Thanks for the awesome recipe!"
