Loved this soup! Tried it as an app at a dinner party. Everyone loved it and two people asked for the recipe! A great way to enjoy brocolli cheddar soup without the guilt!

This has just become a favorite. I have an old standby cream of broccoli soup recipe, but I am trading it in for this one because it is so much lower in fat and takes only a few minutes to make. I also added a 1/4 tsp dry mustard as that is what my old standby recipe calls for. Love the idea of using frozen broccoli so you could get broccoli locally and in season then freeze it.

Yummy soup. I prefer it blended well/creamy but my husband liked it very chunky/gritty.
