The soup was really good ; good recipe
EXCELLENT FLAVOR. I substitute evaporated skim milk for the cream and some of the broth with no decrease in the delicious taste. My husband loves this soup and asks for it often. Changing the broccoli to a different veg makes delicious soup of any kind.
using potato flakes is pobably better and faster than adding 3 potatoes mashed. also, try cooking the broccli only 15 to 25 minutes and cut off the stems and cook longer. take this water cooked with the stemi and add to the soup instead of just water. The flavors are Better.....
definitely do not add more broth. It does look like in the beginning that there is not enough but when you add the milk it is fine. I blended some of the broccoli to make it creamier and left some chunks. Pretty good. Would make it again. I did use whole milk, not heavy cream.
Don't listen to the other reviewers! I read the reviews first saying that there wasn't enough chicken broth, so I bumped it up to 3 cups and made the rest of the soup as written. It ended up watery and horrible even with the cornstarch! I doubled up on spices and used crackers but it wasn't salvageable. Next time I will make it as shown and see how it turns out. I don't know about them, but I made sure to cover mine while it cooked which would've kept in the water instead of boiling it off. Maybe that makes the difference.
