YUM!! My husband loved it too and he is not a big soup eater. My only problem was it took a long time to cook the broccoli. I think I had it on too low as I was worried about boiling. Is it considered boiling if there are any bubbles?

I have been looking for a restaurant quality broccoli soup for so long. This was just outstanding. I used half and half instead of cream and 3 Tbsp. of butter to save some calories, and it was still so rich creamy and delicious. Thank you so much for posting this. My husband said it was a winner as well, and he has never cared about broccoli soup.
