    I deviated from the recipe a little. I used 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper. A bit too much pepper, next time 1/4 tsp. Added 1 can evaporated skim milk, 1/4 c. Parmesan, and 3 cl. garlic. Thickened with 2 Tbls. corn starch, not flour. Keeper! Very versatile. - 11/2/09

    Good basics but needs more seasoning. I added some garlic, some fresh rosemary & lots of pepper. I also thickened it with some instant mashed potatoes instead of the flour. I think it could also benefit from a broth or onion soup. Or try pureed winter squash or yams as a thickener. - 3/19/08

    I used chicken broth instead of the butter, added garlic, omitted the salt and added parmesan cheese. It is fantastic. definitely something quick and easy to whip up for lunch. it only takes 30 minutes to make. I will most definitely make this again. - 9/9/08

    Very good I loved it. I did add a slice of cheese into it as it cooked, gave it a good texture and taste.

    I WILL make it again.

  • I made this exactly as printed and it was good, just a bit too much thyme for my taste. I will definitely make again maybe trying other spices/herbs in place of the thyme. Maybe tarragon next time. - 3/10/10

    I made this soup almost exactly as written. I used herbs de provence instead of the thyme simply because I was out of thyme. I thought it was very good! I love broccoli though! I will add and substitute at will next time, however. - 3/20/08

    I 'sort of' made this soup! I always alter recipes, can't follow one straight on. Instead of flour & Butter, I use some natural chicken broth & water instead. It's more brothy w/out the flour, but is still tasty & filling w/ the veggies. I omit the salt as broth adds enuf of that. Thank you! - 3/19/08

    The salt content is way too high... I wouldn't eat this much salt in soup :( - 3/18/08

    Good base for a soup. Try adding a bit of reduced fat ham, cooked, drained spinach, a handful of sharp cheddar cheese or a cup of shredded rotisserie chicken. Personally, I omitted the celery and added 1/2 box frozen peas during the last 3 minutes. I also added a teaspoon of garlic powder. - 3/18/08
