For a very comforting soup with a nice, creamy texture, try this one with nutritious broccoli and chunks of potato. The red pepper flakes add a hint of spice, and the fresh herbs make this a truly delicious soup.—Crystal Kelso, Sandy, Oregon

"It was not good. I put much less garlic than it called for, and it was still garlicy...and I love garlic! The "soup" part was also very thin."

"Reading other comments. Garlic is very good for you. We didn't add the cheese until just before we are it. The aroma was good as far as we thought. Made me hungry."

"We made this and added chopped ham. Was delicious. Took it to friends, never even tasted it before, they liked it also."

"Why would I want to make a broccoli soup using canned soup? You could easily make a tasty homemade broccoli potato soup using chicken broth on the stovetop in very little time."

"My husband put this in the crockpot yesterday, and it was horrible. The recipe calls for 7 cloves of garlic. He put them all in. My eyes were watering when I walked into the kitchen. May be good if you use 1 clove of garlic."
