  1. This soup is a real mixed bag for me, which is why I gave it three stars. The main con is the consistency. Even with blending, I don't feel like it's a smooth soup - it's a little too grainy for my taste. The flavoring and ease of making it are the major pros. I think I would consider making it without pureeing next time and maybe add some potatoes and onions as well.
  2. Hi, I prefer using skim milk with fat free half and half plus small chunk of cheddar cheese.
  3. I followed the advice of other reviewers and added an onion and some black pepper. It was very mild in flavor - we were worried that the broccoli might taste to strong but it was perfect. Definitely will make again.
  4. A great easy soup...I really did not measure the broccoli but know I had more than 3 cups so I added more garlic and ginger also along with mixed dried peppers and extra soy sauce...I kept the soy milk to 1 cup and used thick homemade spicy veggie stock (any good soup starts off from good stock :wink: )...to make the soup a bit more "creamy" I added some corn starch in at the last heating stage...also left a "bit of the broc" chunky to give each bowl a bite of "meatiness :) "...YUMMY :)
  5. I doubled the recipe and it was good. I agree with ladypit that it is a bit thin, I'm thinking I'll add a small potato next time to add a little body to the soup. I sprinkled a few red pepper flakes in my bowl too - but I happen to like things a little spicy.
