"Hello, Donalee,

I would like to make this soup for my family.  It sounds delicious and I, too have fresh broccoli and cauliflower that I would like to use.  My question to you is, did you have to alter any of the directions, especially the cooking time, when you used fresh, rather than frozen?  Also, I am more interested in using my crockpot in place of a dutch oven.  Thanks for your time."

"Tasty but too watery. Next time, I'd decrease the water, add more cheese & maybe add another can of cream of chicken soup to give it a creamier texture."
