    Very good simple soup. I did make some changes but I don't think it changed the quality of the soup. We had frozen broccoli so I did cook it quickly in the microwave and then continued with the recipe as directed. It was creamy and extra fast to put together with my little substitution. Thanks for the recipe :)

    As people pointed out about the butter being too much, I only used one tablespoon of butter. To cut down on the fat content, I also used just 3 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese and 1 cup of low fat milk and water for the rest. I pureed the onion, celery and broccoli mixture after sauteeing it. The final verdict: delicious!

    I didn't have any celery so I added a little shredded carrot. I was also out of Velveeta so I used some white American cheese. I reduced the butter to 1/4 cup to lighten it up a bit. Very tasty!

    I loved this recipe! It is very good and easy to make. I left the onions and celery out the second time and it tastes great either way!

    An excellent recipe for Cream of Broccoli Soup! I made this for a meeting and served it to about 40 women...a tough review crowd. I think the phrase I heard most often was, "This is the best Broccoli Soup I have ever eaten!" I must have handed out at least 20 recipes. I used cheddar cheese in place of the Velveeta...other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you Virginia!
