"I followed this recipe from BigOven.com fairly closely. Only big variation was that i think it a waste just to use the florets ... so i steam the stocks, puree them in food processor and add them back to the soup. It does make it thicker and more Brocollie-ee. Me i think it was an improvement ... denise said the soup at BJ's was thinner and she seemed to like that better ... but she said mine was good too."- sethR

For each serving spoon one cup of soup into a bowl and garnish with a Tbsp. of shredded cheese and a pinch of parsley.

KristySim 4 months agoThe plus is that it's quite easy and very fast to make. However, I think the recipe was missing seasoning. Also the soup needed some croutons.
Sueski 5 months agoThis was quick and easy to make! I was just wanting to use up some broccoli I had left over from last nights dinner. So I made this soup for lunch. Added some extra cracked pepper as a personal preference. Ended up eating 2 bowls !! Thanks for posting.
