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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This was easy to make and tasted good. First, I doubled the recipe. I sauteed a large sweet onion and 4 cloves of garlic, then added 1 qt. of low-sodium chicken broth. Instead of water, I used the cannellini beans, undrained. I blended...

Really delicious soup. I used low fat cheese and turned the blender as high as I could to get it nice and smooth. I also added a little vegetable bullion. Great, quick, yummy recipe.

This is one of my favorite weeknight go-to meals. It's fast and delicious. I like that it has some cheese but not a ton. The beans make it creamy and satisfying.

I made this tonight using a bag of frozen broccoli cuts (I had them in the house and it's very cold here). It was great! Since it was my main meal I did have more than one serving, but less than two.

Thanks for the wonderful soup!

Interesting that a bad review was based upon failure to read for comprehension (puree was mentioned in its description and at least once more in the body of the recipe/directions, for sakes!)... "It's the poor craftsman who blames his tools..."

I was so looking forward to this soup. I wish I could give it high marks, but it was just not good. The texture was gritty, and felt just like what it was - little bitty broccoli buds and not much else. Maybe it would help to puree it longer? But even then, I had to add twice as much cheese as was called for just to taste a hint of cheddar, despite the fact that I was using good-quality aged sharp cheddar. I'm bummed. I'll keep on searching for a good, light broccoli cheese soup.
