When I want soup at a restaurant, it’s broccoli-cheese all the way. When I make it at home it’s creamy cheesy, exactly how I like it. —Kristen Hills, Layton, UT

"I tried this recipe, followed it pretty much to a T and I keep having an issue where at the end the milk or something curdles, and I'm not sure why that happens at all and was wondering if anyone else has had that issue or anyone else can help me figure out why it did. I used evaporated milk as well."

"Sounded good, but was not creamy and way too thin. I thought it might be

easier than my other broccoli soup recipes since it was made in the crockpot. Unfortunately it was awful and I poured it away."

"Sounds delicious but I'd have to bypass that processed cheese stuff - too much sodium and grainy texture. Guess I'd add some guyere for a smooth taste along with the cheddar. Otherwise, sounds simply awesome."

"LOVED this soup, I did a couple things a little differently- I used 1 cup of veggie stock and 2 cups of chicken stock, added more pepper, garlic salt, all purpose seasoning blend, omitted the parmesan, and included 2 pinches of nutmeg to cut that processed cheese flavor. So good!"
