Reviews for Broccoli-Cauliflower Cheese Soup
"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."
"I MADE THIS SOUP TODAY FOR OUR SUPPER TONIGHT.IT WAS DELICIOUS. THERE WAS A LOT OF PREP WORK BECAUSE I USED FRESH BROCCOLI AND CAULIFLOWER BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. LOW CALORIE TOO. WILL MAKE THIS AGAIN."
