    all in all a pretty good base recipe. I tweaked it a bit though. I started by using more broccoli than it called for, ( i used 16 oz snd it still wasn't enough ) and i pre-cooked it. I than put about 3/4 of it in the blender for a creamier texture. I also used fat free cream cheese and 2% velveeta, it tasted no different just made me feel a little healthier. I also added lots of cajun seasoning blend.  -  05 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum yum ! This soup was delicious and so filling! We loved it! I microwaved the frozen broccoli for a minute before putting it into the soup mixture to soften it up.  -  30 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good, but I expected better-the broccoli didn't get totally cooked so it was crunchy- next time I will either let it thaw or cook it in the microwave first. The cream cheese is very good, it gives it a creamy taste & the onion gave it a little bit of sweetness-I'm sure with a little tweaking to our liking it will be awesome. Thanks for a great basic recipe!  -  17 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
