Super easy and delicious!

I just finishing making and eating this delicious soup! I had all the ingredients on hand, as I'm sure most people would since they are kitchen staples. I used fresh broccoli, fresh thyme and dried parsley, plus I used both white and black pepper to amp up the spice a bit. I didn't use any water and the texture came out beautifully - nice and velvety. I did opt for the half and half, but I think it would have been just as good without. It turned out PERFECT and I can't wait for leftovers!

Easy, Delicious, Used Whole Foods, Affordable Ingredients
Absolutely wonderful! Made a few tweaks.

Made this totally butter or half & half...used veg broth...caramelized the onions (do this, it makes a huge difference in flavor)...doubled garlic. And added smoked paprika to each bowl as I ate it...which for me took this from really good to amazing. The broccoli flavor wasn't a strong note the first day, but became more noticable the following days...though still subtle in my opinion. I used a vitamix to blend after making sure everything was soft, which resulted in a luxuriously creamy soup. WONDERFUL!
Am thinking of doubling the broccoli & pulling the extra amount before blending...then adding it back after, for some texture. Just to try it that way.
I think this might be tasty over pasta, grain or rice.

healthy whole food, easy, fairly quick
Good but nor very" brocolly -ish "- flavor are healthy but somewhat off to me.

Ok green soup -- would like more punched -up flavor to encourage the brocolli flavor.

QUick and easy,
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.
