"From The Simply Healthy Lowfat Cookbook, 1995, this recipe makes a comforting soup. Instead of the chicken broth & water, a similar measure of my own Chicken Broth Supreme!"

    Very good flavor profile with the Tarragon. I did sauté the onions and added celery with butter and oil for a bit for fat and flavor. Then added the flour for a roux. I think it layers the flavor profile to be a bit bolder. I also added about 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese for thickener

    Very healthy, filling and delish soup overflowing with flavour! I did not add the full amount of broccoli because I was worried it would be too 'broccoli' but I am sure that the soup can handle the full amount. Made for Gimme 5 Tag.

    Loved this soup! Very tasty with the tarragon and thyme, and quick to make with ingredients I always have on hand. I used cheddar jack and left out the onions. Great quick lunch or light dinner - thanks for sharing the recipe!

    You will never miss the fat in this soup. Enjoyed how quick and healthy this soup was. The tarragon really helps this dish shine. Made using fat free cheddar. Thanks so much for the post.

    Great healthy dish, we loved it. Used rice milk in place of the milk. Don't leave out the red bell pepper it made the dish! Thanks
