    This was a pretty good soup. It seemed like it was missing something in my opinion though. It was fun to try and has a cute name! Thanks for the recipe!

    We call broccoli "trees" too. This soup is really thick, rich and creamy....without cream or milk. I love the texture that the blended potatoes give the soup. It's the kind of soup that is easy for toddlers to eat because it really clings to their spoon. My cheddar cheese was sharp cheddar. Thanx for a new version of brocc/cheese soup. It's great!
