    I used cauliflower instead of broccoli because that is what I had. I love soup - all kinds. Next time I will add some herbs, like all ready mentioned. - 9/24/10

    I just made this recipe found it on the Kraft Canada website, used only 2 tbsp oil, and 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese instead of the parmesan, because that was all I had. I didn't really like the flavour. It needed something more. Some spices or something. Next time I'll try something else. - 8/8/10

    Will save this one to try down the road. Think less carrots and more broccoli will work better for my taste. Thanks for sharing! - 9/24/10

    I'm going to save this recipe and give the soup a try. But please, please, don't call it "creamy" when there's no cream. I really don't like it when low fat or fat free things are called "creamy" because they were put through a blender. No, it's not creamy. I will be using salt and herbs. - 9/24/10
