Great recipe! Easy to mix and match veggies on hand! Have even used almond milk with no issues. As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that are easily adapted to my family’s taste and budget!

I made this recipe and it was really good. I used one teaspoon of salt and added one cup of corn. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!

Fabulous. I have paid money for broccoli chowders at restaurants that didn't taste this good. I don't use much chicken bouillon so I might substiture some chicken broth if I don't have bouillon.

I just made this tonight. It's very good. But I added lots of pepper, some red pepper flakes, garlic, and onion powder. It just needed spices. But, it's very very good.

This was excellent chowder! Easy to make, hearty and satisfying, and packed with vegetables! I loved it! Big serving sizes, too. It made a lot! I think it would also be excellent with some corn in it, and if you wanted meat, some chicken breast would go very well in it. Yummy!

This was very good. I halved the recipe, added more veggies than called for, used reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese slices and cornstarch for the thickener. Great taste.

Oh my, this is wonderful. Like a cream of broccoli soup but with extras. A plus that it is so healthy.

I love this recipe. Ihave made it numerous times. A great way to get your vegetables in. I use sharp cheddar instead of the processed cheese.
