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.

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.


very filling and heartwarming soup, must for veggie lovers! i didn't add celery, thyme or half and half and it still tasted great (my veg stock did have bay leaf, clove and ginger)

filling, great taste

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.
