Crm of Broccoli Soup

I tried this today on July the 4th! It's a cool damp day in New England. The soup was easy to prepare, but seemed lacking something in the flavour dept. I added salt & pepper in the beginning - so it didn't lack that. Perhaps next time I'll use fresh broccoli. It seemed it didn't taste "broccoli" enough. I even added some locally made white cheddar cheese. Maybe even some bacon will be good cooked with the onion. Still, it was a hearty and satisfying soup!

Easy Cream of Broccoli Soup

This soup was fantastic! Easy and quick to make My son loved it. I especially like the use of Evaporated milk rather than cream. I also used fresh broccoli instead of the frozen.

Loved the soup very easy to prepare only thing I will do next time is not puree the broccoli. I like big chunks of broccoli. I also added some carrots just for some color. Hubby liked it too. It did need salt and pepper. I think that's to every ones personal taste. Wonderful soup thank you

Great Soup!

I downloaded the recipe for Easy Cream of Broccoli soup and made two batches within a couple of days. It was so good, it went very quickly. I used fresh steamed broccoli instead of the frozen, and it was excellent! This will definately be a staple this winter.

Easy Cream of Broccoli Soup

This soup was simple and easy to make. It needed a little extra flavor however, and so I added some salt and pepper. I also put some shredded cheddar cheese on top before serving and that gave the soup additional flavor and color as well.
