Loved it added Bacon bits

MY REVIEW

It seemed to lack something. I would probably add nutmeg or some chesse the next time I make it to kick it up a notch. I did bump up the chicken broth to about double the amount and it worked out fine. I also pureed the broccoli prior to adding the whipped cream. It is very rich.

MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2013

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.....
