Modified and was amazing!

I modified this recipe a bit because I like to make bigger batches, to last a whole week. I used 32 oz of frozen broccoli, and added 1 bunch of kale and 1 chopped carrot to the base. I increased the chicken broth to 8 cups and used 4 garlic cloves and 2 onions for increased flavor. I also used both fresh thyme and parsley. The flavor is amazing - I made a spicy turkey sausage to add on top of the soup, and the combo is over-the-top. With the meat, kale, and additional broccoli this soup is very filling and still healthy.

EASY

Omit water

Delicious! I made it as the recipe stated but left out the water. The consistency & seasonings were perfect.

I didn't even add the half-and-half; it really didn't need it.

Yummy!

Might have been user error, but my batch separated a lot. I like the chunkiness so I didn't have a problem with draining some of the broth.

Delicious, especially for how healthy it is

Great Inspiration

This soup is delicious!! I've made it a few times now, and just decided to review it finally. I hardly ever follow recipes to the letter, and this wasn't much of an exception as my measurements were definitely not exact. I just added stuff in amounts that were to my taste (more veggies, herbs, etc) and omitted things I didn't have (like the broth and half & half - I just used water and [almond] milk).

Seeing how I'm certainly a poor college student stuck with a mediocre kitchen, the only think I have to blend it with is my little magic bullet blender, so that part of the process is slightly more tedious. However, I love this soup and think it is well worth it, especially since it keeps very well and I can make a good quantity to enjoy for a while :)

Oh, and I especially like to have this together with a quick quesadilla..don't know if they specifically "go" together, but the combination is fantastic in my opinion.
