This recipe seemed so promising, I read the reviews and altered it a bit for my taste buds off of others recommendations, and thank god i did, because if i hadn't, this would have been a complete failure. I was hopeful that it would taste as good as it sounded, but like others had mentioned its just missing something, it could be that I'm just used to the delicious creamy one with the rich flavour but this just wasn't a hit. I did add garlic and onion to the mix and it added a significant amount of flavour and made this worth the time for making it. However, despite best efforts i won't be making it again.
Broccoli, Cannellini Bean & Cheddar Soup
From EatingWell: September/October 2007
White beans pureed into this broccoli soup make it extra creamy so you don't need heaps of cheese to do the job. Serve with a crunchy whole-grain roll and a glass of winter ale.

I made this however the only thing I did was double the recipe, and I had a bag of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots that needed to be eaten. I used all chicken stock, reduced sodium. I used a sharp aged white cheddar and one can of cannelloni beans and 1 greater northern as that's what I had. I pureed the entire soup. It was a hit with the entire family. I served it with grilled cheese. Yes the soup does have the been taste but you can taste the other flavors as well. Both a 4 and 8 year old enjoyed bowls.
Very easy to make and tasted delicious. I didn't have any cannellini beans so I used garbanzo beans. Tonight I am going to make it again and add onions and garlic. Can't wait for dinner!
Made this as directed but added a clove of garlic after reading the reviews. Even so, this soup wasn't tasteless, but pretty near there. Very disappointed. I suspect with tweaking it could be much improved, but there are already better recipes out there. Won't be making this again.
This soup was such a good broccoli cheddar soup!! The only change I made was to add an extra 1/2 cup of cheese. The beans made the soup incredibly filling and good texture.
