I hadn't cooked for all these years and now due to Covid, I was forced to experiment with cooking. And I recently found this recipe and tried it, hoping it would turn out ok for a first time cook. It actually turned out absolutely delicious, in fact just like a restaurant quality soup! And making it was super quick and convenient. Loved it.
Really nice. I added some fresh spinach, turmeric and ginger. It didn't make much of a difference to the already-delicious flavor, but why not make a healthy soup even healthier?
Excellent recipe! Definitely agree with others that it is a bit bland, but I took "add pepper to taste" to heart and put a TON of pepper in it. I also used sour cream instead of half and half.
This was delicious! I added 2 carrots, didn't use water and used vegetable broth. No cream was needed as it was already creamy. This was soup was perfect for our snowy Seattle February and a great use of the abundance of broccoli my husband had left over from his catering event. I will be making this again.
This was so tasty! I will admit to a couple changes though. I roasted the broccoli (drizzled with a little olive oil and salt) at 425 for about 15 minutes before adding it to the soup. I thought I was going to half the recipe so I cut the broth (homemade turkey bone broth) down to 3 cups and didn't add water. The broccoli had wilted so much that I ended up roasting 8 cups. I left the broth at 3 cups and only added an extra 1/2 cup water. I think it would have been too soupy if I'd added the full 6 cups of liquid. I also put in a pinch of smoked paprika and a few shakes of chipotle Tabasco sauce. I didn't add the cream - it didn't need it (it was so creamy that my husband assumed I'd added it). I pureed in my blender and it was delicious!! I will definitely make again.
I doubled this and it made what I call a "vat," so I can freeze portions, but nonetheless, the day will come when I run out and yes, I'd make it again. In order to make it qualify for our Friday night dinners in Lent, I used vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth and water, and it was very tasty indeed. The cream I'd bought for this recipe will have to be put to other use, as it's so good without it, it requires no further tampering. I
Very good, Light receipe!! Will make again...
Delicious Soup!! I’ve been looking for a simple yet delicious broccoli soup for cravings and this one was perfect! I used vegetable broth and carrots instead of celery because it was what I had on hand. I also added rosemary instead of thyme, personal preference, and didn’t add any cream since I had an upset stomach. Let me tell you even with all the changes, it was still so rich and delicious. Perfect vegan version. I plan to add cream and cheddar to my next batch, this recipe can be tweaked to your preference and still work!
This nice. I not have parsley, so using rocotos instead. Nice power. Please tell, what is Caution I need to add when putting in the tool for making runny? Does it make better?
I followed the recipe exactly and it was absolutely delicious!!! I used the immersion blender and it was so creamy and velvety. I have saved this recipe and am currently making my second batch. Whenever I have a broccoli soup craving, this will be the one that will be my go-to broccoli soup recipe!
This is a simply yummy soup, creamy without the milk. I used a little cream as it is lactose free, but would have been just as good without. Did not make any other changes. Great for a quickie light meal. This will become a standard for me.
Yum! Didnt have cream, but i had cheddar cheese. Also had some ham, so i chopped some and added with a cup or so of grated cheese. Took other's advice and upped the garlic, both parsley and thyme. Added a pich of cayenne. Didn't purree completely, left some chopped broccoli chunkys. Yum!
I just made this soup. I was short 2 cups of broccoli so i substituted cauliflower. I filled the recipe exactly. Half n half used. I usually don't add the cream element when it is optional but as a first timer with this recipe i decided to. I like it but i think I'll use more broth instead of the water. And more herbs and salt ( or maybe parmesan). It needs a a little more wow! Red pepper flakes sound good to add as,well.
I left the salt and cream out. Beautiful and easy, will make this again for sure.
So. Good. Mine turned out just like the photo! I omitted salt and pepper. I don't add salt to anything. Food doesn't need it. :) I used an immersion blender in the pot to blend the soup to perfection. Tasted amazing. I had some carrot and sweet potatoe purée left over- I added it in and - even better!!!! I also added 1/2 cup 35% cream. This recipe is a winner! The liquid level was perfect.
This is very good. Did not add the water or half and half. It's delicious!
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. Pros: Delicious, especially for how healthy it is Cons: Consistency isn't quite right
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.
Try with BaconI've made the same soup for years, but in my version, http://tiny.cc/tj9b7, I saute off a slice of bacon to start with. Just that little bit gives the whole pot a deeper, more complex flavor.

Easy and Delicious! I added a few red pepper flakes and a small amount of grated cheddar cheese - put everything in my vita-mix and it came out velvety smooth. It's a really delicious soup and an easy way to get a serving of veggies! Pros: Quick and Healthy Cons: None
Texture is a little off Made this soup last night and was terribly bland; as has been stated before. Plus, for some reason the texture of this soup is off to me. Not at all 'velvety'; certainly not creamy in the least bit. Not a real winner. Pros: Easy to prepare, low in calories Cons: Pretty bland
Reader Comment Delicious and easy to prepare. I agree, it needed a little extra seasoning for our taste. Like Sarah, I added more dried thyme, parsley and some white pepper.
Easy to make and delicious. Needed a bit more spice so added extra thyme (dried), pepper and a dash of dried parsley flakes, (in addition to fresh parsley and thyme)
