    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
