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!
