Vegetarian Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Vegetarian Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Introduction

Spark had a "featured" recipe today for Broccoli and Cheese soup. I'm a vegetarian, and theirs contained chicken broth. I searched and couldn't find a good vegetarian option on Spark, so decided to share mine. Spark had a "featured" recipe today for Broccoli and Cheese soup.

    I used unsweetened original almond milk and leeks instead of skim milk and onion (as our households does not like either) and it was delicious! Very glad to have found this recipe, thanks! :) - 12/3/11

    Thanks for this recipe, it was really good, and so easy to make. I wasn't sure how much was a serving, so I only had a couple cups, but it was very filling. - 10/14/08

    I am glad that you enjoyed it. I don't remember how much is in a serving. The next time I make it, I will measure it out. There are 6 of us in our family and I usually just divide it between us.
