WHEN OUR two sons left home (in the same year) to build their own "nests", we had lots of adjustments to make, especially in our menus.
This recipe works well for us. It's easy, healthy and tasty. My husband's favorite vegetable is broccoli, so this soup makes his day!

"When my husband and I visit fresh-food stands, we often come home with more vegetables than we can eat," Marge Hill shares from Glenside, Pennsylvania. "I lightened up this tarragon-flavored soup to use up the broccoli we buy. I like it with crusty bread, a salad or a sandwich."
“My husband is diabetic, and I’m watching my weight. This soup fits our diets perfectly,” writes Carol Colvin from Derby, New York. Friends and family will never guess it only takes just 15 minutes to make!
For a very comforting soup with a nice, creamy texture, try this one with nutritious broccoli and chunks of potato. The red pepper flakes add a hint of spice, and the fresh herbs make this a truly delicious soup.—Crystal Kelso, Sandy, Oregon
