    Broccoli Soup

    TAMMY WILLIAMS from Nebo, NC

    I too found the powdered milk could have been substitued. I will make this again though and add my own touches. It was still pretty good.

    Danielle Fallesen from ,

    I made this soup and was unfortunately disappointed. I felt the powdered milk left the consistency gritty. I plan to try the other recipe off the site and hope for better results.

    Cream of Broccoli Soup

    Carol Fischer from Spartanburg, SC

    About 2 yrs ago I received a post-card from Nestle's with this recipe. I tried it and my husband and I loved it. He is picky about cream soups, but loved this one. It is great for cold days and for freezing. I now make it whenever the autumn/winter arrives. Thanks Nestle's.

    This is a really great recipe....I often add some american cheese (whatever my whim is at the time - usually 3 - 4 slices) and once it's melted it's so yummy - adds protein too!

    The soup was delicious and went together quickly but, if using a blender I really have to emphasize the importance of blending in small batches as I managed to make a mess not doing so myself.

    Cream of Broccoli Soup

    Anne Edwards from PASCO, WA

    Delicious and healthy. We use a lot of broccoli, and what I like best is that with dry milk and chicken broth always on hand in my pantry, this is an easy change-up way to prepare it.

    cream of broccoli soup

    Louetta Nicolle from TORRANCE, CA

    I have a vegetable garden and raise my own broccoli, garlic, and onions, so I make this soup often, it is easy to make, very tasty, and freezes well, I do not use the dry powdered milk though. instead I use can milk, it gives the soup a creamier texture. sometimes I add a grated carrot, and some celery too.
