    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
