I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. This is the only Cream of Broccoli soup I could find that doesn't list chicken broth or chicken boullion in the ingredients (I didn't have either). Great flavor and texture and I will make this again.

This soup is superb. Used skim milk and opted to saute the onion til transparent for sweetness. I Love this soup. My new favorite. Really do not measure anything, just kind of add and mix as i go. Once in a bowl, add a bit of black pepper and sprinkle with grated parmesian cheese. MMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMM Good!!!!!!! Have made it 3 times in like 2 weeks. Delish!!! Brenda

This was great. I was tired of all of the Cream of Broccoli recipes making you cook the stuff first and then put it in the blender, that was always a mess. This one came out great!!! I added chicken broth instead of the water to the milk and it gave it extra flavor. Thanks!!
