"My family loved this recipe!"

"I made this last night and wasn't crazy about the flavor. I will be looking for a new recipe: one that uses chicken broth rather than beef broth. Couldn't get enough flavor to suit me."

Reviewed Feb. 23, 2015

"I made this, and we really didn't care for the flavor. Plus it didn't make very much... but honestly, after we tried it, we weren't that disappointed about the portion."

"Agree that this is very bland. Added things to give it more flavor, but just not as good as other broccoli soups I have had."
