This recipe definitly lives up to it's name as being the "best ever"! I made the soup last night to rave reviews. I made a few minor adjustments as follows. First, I added 1/4tsp. Cayenne Pepper to "kick it up a notch". Then I added 1/2 cup sour cream (yummy). And I made sure that the 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese was sharp! That added so much more flavor. Excellent recipie. Would make again and again.

For taste, I would give this recipe way more than five stars! It tasted great--I loved the combination of vegetables, plus I added a couple of carrots, and substituted frozen chopped spinach. My only other additions were salt, pepper, and the tabasco that I add to all cheese soups. The texture of mine turned out crappy, though, but I'm pretty sure it's because I didn't have enough potatoes. I'd already started putting it together before getting out the potatoes, and I maybe had 1 1/2 pounds, so the cheese had nothing to stick to but itself. Despite that debacle, everybody loved it, and I will definitely try again!

If you have some time to prepare all the veggies and potatoes (it probably took me 45 minutes to chop everything) then it's worth the work! This soup was super creamy, I couldn't believe there wasn't milk or cream in it. I didn't chop the broccoli and califlower enough, so the pieces were too big- that's what I would change next time. Delicious!

Little pepper and it's perfect! Hooray for *real* food!! It's refreshing to find a recipe that's doesn't called for bags of frozen vegetables, dehydrated potatoes, canned soups and processed cheese!

This soup has a fantastic flavor. My husband had oral surgery and needed something totally soft to eat; so we pureed the whole thing, broccoli, cauliflower and all. It was really tasty and had a great texture. However I am really looking forward to trying again with the original recipe when his mouth is healed.

I scaled this down to 4 servings. To make it vegetarian I used vegetable bouillon instead of the chicken. After tasting I added some garlic powder. My daughter likes her soup quite chunky so I only blended about a third of the soup. Very enjoyable and bound to be on the menu again. Many Thanks.

This was absolutely delicious! I have a hard time getting my husband to eat vegetables, but he loved this. It turned out very green, which I loved but he was hesitant about, but it was so good he didn't mind!

I was looking to use up some broccoli and cauliflower that I had and stumbled upon this recipe. I didn't follow the recipe exactly because I just used what was on hand. I added some little bits of grilled chicken. Exciting way to use up my veggies

Delicious! I followed the recipe pretty closely, but pureed it a bit more. I also added sour cream after reading the other reviews, and I recommend it. It tastes almost like a loaded baked potato. Very creamy and filling!

I really LOVE this soup. I omit the potatoes (to reduce carbs for a diabetic) and sauté broccoli and cauliflower along with the onions in olive oil and butter, then follow the other directions as listed. I use my immersion blender and blend all the vegetables once they are cooked. The soup is very creamy without lots of extra calories. Once the cheese is added, no salt or pepper are needed; the flavor is perfect. I've started calling this my "Virtuous Soup". Thanks for sharing the recipe, AMEHNEY.
