"Easy to make, good flavor. We added about one cup of shredded Colby Jack cheese. Next time I will use half the amount of pepper."

"Just made this soup again for supper. It is my go to broccoli soup recipe. Easy and we love it. Only thing I do differently is omit the salt and nutmeg and I use an ordinary onion. Delicious!!!"
