Quick Cream of Broccoli Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
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! -Elsie Quance, Newark, New York
