Very surprised by negative reviews. My wife and I experiment with many recipes and few make it into regular rotation; this one did. Be aware that depending on the broccoli you may need to adjust the liquid. Every time we make the broccoli gives up different amounts of water and the thickness needs to be adjusted. Best with a Chicago hard roll.
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 had such high hopes for this soup. However, once I started to cook the broccoli I realized there just wasn't much liquid to this recipe, and there was A LOT of broccoli. I added more veg broth throughout the process, but still when we ate it, it was too think or something. The texture was mushy and not to our liking at all. I won't be making this again.
I liked this recipe (my husband loved it). I did have to add some extra veggie broth at the end. Overall, it was quick and easy and perfect for a fast weeknight dinner.
Made this strictly by the recipe. The first day it was ok but not great. I think it needed more broccoli to balance out the beans. But then on days 2, 3 and 4 it was much better. The flavors had married nicely and the beans were less pronounced. I think next time I will make it ahead of time and add a bit more broccoli.
I added garlic/onion - spices.
