Sounded delicious, so we tried it last night. It had no flavor, in spite of adding salt and pepper. We tried several bites and ended up throwing it away. It's too bad, because I love a good broccoli cheese soup.

Made this to use up some vegetables I had in the fridge. Was very happy with the results. I have passed some out to some friends. I will definitely make it again. Thanks. May put some in the freezer for later.
