    OK recipe but broccoli and zucchini is much too delicate a taste for the garlic. It will drown it. Best If you can find zucchini that isn't the size of a marrow,. The smaller the better.  -  02 Aug 2017


    This was a little bland at first so I added salt, pepper, some fresh basil and served it with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese at the end...delicious!  -  07 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    I made this but instead of making the broccoli separately i put it in the pot with the zucchini and cooked them down a little before adding the stock so that i could capture all the flavours. I added a sprinkle of parmesan on serving. Healthy and delicious!  -  20 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
