"I used a bag of frozen broccoli florets, a can of sliced carrots, added at the end, and a can of condensed cream of broccoli soup since we prefer a thicker soup. It was excellent."

"I made this soup with a California blend vegetable mix (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots). It was delicious and I will definitely make this again."

"this soup is delicious! I made the full recipe and ate it all my self over several lunches and dinners! Got a little kick to it and I think I would cut the cayenne in 1/2 or more if serving to my children. Easy too! Kind of tastes like cream of cheese and broccoli soup, but its nice with the extra vegetables!"
