Reviews for Sour Cream Broccoli Soup
"I gave it five stars. easy to prepare, hearty, and delicious! So good I'd triple the recipe next time I make it."
"This was very good and very easy. I used the broccoli stalks that are usually thrown away and chopped small. Added a little black pepper and omitted the cumin. Very simple, very good. My husband wanted more but it only made 3 decent size servings."
