This is a great soup
"I doubled the recipe and used more garlic cloves than the recipe suggested (so doubling I used a total of 6 garlic cloves, would only add one extra for a total of 3 if making the recipe as is). Because it was such a big batch I used an immersion blender, which left a little of it a bit chunky... it actually made it way easier and I liked it a lot! That's how I'd do it even if were the single batch. It was sooooo good."- Minerva79

chris10leigh 4 days 7 hours agoThe broth was very seasoned and the broccoli garlicky. Wish the broth had thickened up a little. My blender is broken so we just ate it with broccoli chunks and it was still really good!

lauraserwerkarayan 1 year agoThe flavor was good, but the consistency was a little grainy for my taste. Also found it a little salty - would use low sodium broth next time.

Kareful831 2 years agoI made this last Sunday and it was a great hit with the family. Loved it I just wish I knew how to make it a little thicker. Other than that we loved it.

Sparker2 3 years agoVery good! I added some bacon and used 1 cup gruyere with 2 cups of cheddar. Next time I would use less broth or allow the soup to thicken before adding the cheese
bholland 4 years agoI would blend in 3-4 batches rather than the 2 suggested. I substituted cheese I had on hand--parmesan--to make 3 cups. Also used fat-free half-n-half for the heavy cream. Very Good.
ckpaint 4 years agoVery good soup, I found preparation to be a little labor intensive, but well worth the effort. Cayenne adds just the right kick to this soup.
