"Used up broccoli from our garden, and the whole family loved this soup! The bay leaves give it a nice flavor and keeps the broccoli odor tolerable."

"I had just picked the last of my broccoli and thought I would like to make a soup with it. I found this recipe, even picked the onions out of my garden and added 2 tiny zucchini to it, and it is absolutely delicious! Thank you for such a simple to make recipe with a wonderful flavor! I will definitely be making it again and again!"

"My sister usually makes the broccoli soup in our family so I never have to. A friend who had surgery requested it, so I decided to give it a shot. I followed the recipe as is. It has promise, but I felt like it was a little bland, probably my fault. I'll make it again, but maybe tweak it a little next time. I'll let you know how it goes!"

"Wonderful and easy. I did not have enough broccoli so I added a little cauliflower and red pepper. Plus I added some parmesian cheese that was on hand. Delicious."

"My husband and I loved this soup. I added a 1/2 up of heavy cream for some of the milk. I added a little sour cream and cheese to the top. Ever since the last time I made this soup my husband has been asking for a repeat ot the recipe. I'm surprising him tonight and making him this soup. This soup freezes really well."
