I didn t use the croutons but it was great just the same. I don't have an immersion blender and put too much in my Ninja. It went everywhere! I salvaged what was left and it was smooth creamy and delicious. I had been looking for a good Broccoli Soup recipe and this is a keeper. Thank you for sharing it.
The first time I made this soup I followed the recipe exactly. It was DELICIOUS!. My granddaughter a picky eater asked for seconds and thirds. The next time I made it I didn't have enough broccoli but did have some cauliflower so I mixed the two and used Apple smoked cheddar cheese. It was just as big a hit with the family.
This is the first time I have tried this recipe and it was quite good. The only changes I made were using white wine in place of the vinegar and no croutons. My husband loved it also. It will be saved to my favorites for sure.
this is delicious i just finished a bowl!! i only made 2 changes i omitted the croutons and i pureed all of the broccoli. i wasn't a fan of the chunky florets in the soup. it's amazing to get such a creamy consistency without using cream! the cheese and bit of flour do that nicely. i will most definately make this again.
My Dutch husband lover of cheese really liked it. We had to use a different smoked cheese here in South Africa but right afterwards I did find a smoked Gouda of course. I didn't make the croutons but it was good without it. I thought it needed a bit more smoked paprika that I added at the end and tasted better the second day. My smoked paprika might need replacing as I think about it and that might help also.
