My friend's wife introduced me to this recipe. I HATE broccoli, but loved this soup. I ate every drop. It's simple and good!

This is a great soup! I skipped the nutmeg and added fresh thyme instead. I also used 2 potatoes. Was great with a small amount of freshly shaven parmesan cheese as well.

A very good and easy soup. I used a large baking potato, so the soup was nice and thick after blending. Also, I didn't add the thawed broccoli until the potato was already tender, and just cooked it a few minutes more so that the broccoli kept a nice green color and fresh flavor. My family, including my 9-yr. old son, really liked this soup.

I was worried after reading other reviews of this recipe but gave it a try anyhow because it looked so easy. It turned out terrific!! It was a little bland but I just added some chopped fresh sage and a little season salt and it turned out great! And you can't beat it for healthy. For my husband I stirred a 1/4 c of chopped proscuitto (you could use ham too) into his and he loved it. I also doubled the potato as per previous reviews here and I loved the thick texture. I will definitely put this in our monthly rotation - thanks Lon!
