Great! Everyone's fav! I double the broccoli and onion, and use 32 oz of chicken broth. (Still use same amt cornstarch and milk.) Then blend less than half of broccoli base b/c we like it chunkier. Soooo good!

I have made this recipe many times and have even used cauliflower instead of broccoli. It really is a wonderful and easy soup.

I may add a few more low cal/low fat ingredients; but I really like using fat-free evaporated milk.
