    This is the first time I have made broccoli soup without cream and was delighted it tasted just as good if not better. Less calories, healthier, and tastes better. I had used frozen chopped broccoli because I had an abundance of frozen broccoli in my freezer. We all thought it was great. - 20 Aug 2012

    This soup is extremely simple to make but the end result is just awesome. I use my jug blender to really get the broccoli mixture very smooth then once combined with the milk, I put it all back in the blender and give it a good minute to get it silky smooth. I serve it with a swirl of cream and homemade wholemeal seeded bread and it goes down a storm. For a less fat recipe, I used semi skimmed milk. Got rave reviews from friends at a recent dinner party I hosted when I served up this soup. Excellent. - 09 Dec 2012
