This simple homemade soup gets a head start from canned potato soup and frozen broccoli. People will be surprised to hear that it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare(if you tell them!).—Gladys Schuler, Bismarck, North Dakota

    Quick and easy and very tasty. I went to Panera bread and bought bread bowls and served to soup in them. Made it all the better.

    This recipes was so simple and tasted amazing. It tasted just as good as the recipe I've been making for years and I didn't have to slave away in the kitchen for hours. Needed a little sea salt and more pepper but other than that, it was perfect!!
