    My husband and I both loved it. We are both diabetic and he has a heart problem..It is lower fat and delicious. HE SAYS IT is Better than Panera Bread's broccoli soup and less expensive and I love it because it is so easy to make and delicious. - 1/26/09

    It's really good! I even made it without the cheese and with olive oil instead of margarine and it still came out great! - 5/6/09

    This soup was very tasty, but I found I liked the consistency better after a quick run through the food processor. It just wasn't thickening up. - 6/23/08

    This is really good and low in fat, calories, and carbs! This is a girls dream! I added just a little bit of spice to it (because I love spicy food) and it came out well. I will eat this over and over again. - 5/22/08

    well the sodium is EXTREMELY high!!!! Not as bad as Panera's sodium, but TOO high in sodium to be made at home. Could choose a lower sodium broth - 4/12/11

  • Way to thin for me, even when I tried adding more flour. I am going to have to play with the recipe or find a new one. Thank you. - 1/12/14

  • It was absolutely delicious, but I also had trouble getting it to thicken. I ran it through a blender and that helped a little. - 11/17/13

  • This was good, however, according to the recipe unfortunately, only 1/2 a cup is a serving size. 1 Cup is still under 200 calories. :) I, agree with other reviewer, sodium is high, I used low sodium broth and skipped salt seasoning and used onion powder for flavor. - 3/19/13

  • I made this with all the veggies I used to make stock, as they were all good. It also ended up a little thin, so I added another 1/2 cup of flour to thicken it a bit. But it really was delicious, restaurant quality! - 3/13/11

  • Easy and tasty! I used 1/2% lowfat milk, Bridgeport seasoning,1 tsp horseradish sauce and a few dashes of Red hot pepper sauce in lieu of Vegetta only because these were available without going out to buy anything. I will definitely make it again. Thank you! - 2/20/10
