"After reading some of the other reviews/suggestions, here is my take. Basic soup was good, but I added more chopped garlic and roasted garlic seasoning to the broccoli. I noticed the flour/butter mixt..." See moreure did tend to clump a little, but I solved that by tossing it back in the blender with a drop or two of chicken stock and smoothing it down (and yes, being from south Louisiana, I do know how to make a roux!). Also, I used whole wheat flour just cause I like the extra "goose" of flavor and texture it gives a roux - one of my cooking tricks that I usually don't reveal :-). Finally, to add a little more body to the soup, I sauteed a handful of chopped mushrooms in butter, roasted garlic seasoning and another splash of chicken stock. After adding the sauteed mushrooms to the soup, I cooked it about 10 minutes more over a low heat and served that puppy up. The shrooms thickened it up just right, and I suspect it'll taste even better tomorrow after the flavors blend a little more. Bon appetit, y'all!"
"Very good tasting and easy soup to make. The only thing I would do differently is only puree half of the broccoli and then chop the other half, it seemed to have too much grit in it with all of brocc..." See moreoli pureed'."
"I thought the recipe was excellent with the combination of the broccoli and garlic. YUM YUM!!The only problem I had preparing it was the fact that I think the recipe calls for too little butter with ..." See morethe amount of flour that the recipe uses. It just turned into a big pasty mess. I've made the recipe numerous times and I now add a touch more butter to it (adds a little fat to the recipe, but not enough to worry about) and it comes out perfect. Also, it sounds like a strange combination, but I've also added chicken to it on occasion to make it a one-bowl dinner on those lazy days. The best compliment I can think of to give this recipe is that my mother loved it. And if you know my mother, she doesn't like anything!"
