    I don't understand why everyone else wants 'thickness' as an attribute of their soup. If the flavour is good I think that is sufficient. This soup as a delicious and mild broccoli flavour. Very well balanced :)

    I actually really liked the flavor once I added a bit more kosher salt. The extra sharp cheddar toasts are key, because they bring strong flavor to the mellow broccoli. I wouldn't eat this soup without them. Let's hope these freeze well! (8 servings is a lot!)

    I actually liked this soup very, very much. It was quick and easy which I find great for a weeknight meal. I added a little less of the broth to make it less runny, substituted heavy cream for milk and added a little less just to get that richness and sprinkled with some shredded cheddar cheese at the end for a nice pungent flavor. Paired it up with some sandwiches and it was a great meal! Enjoy!

    I add a couple of potatoes depending on their size and a couple of rashers of bacon chopped up this not only thickens but also adds flavour,

    Instead of thickening up with flour I always add 2-3 potatoes depending on their size cut into chunks and a couple of rashers of bacon diced, then when cooked and cooled a bit, place the lot in the blender. The potatoes thicken it up well and the bacon adds more flavour.

    A very healthy and low fat broccoli soup, but I agree it was runny and not the most delicious flavor. I'll keep looking for a different broccoli soup recipe.

    I found this soup very runny and had to add flour to thicken it up. Simmering the florets to the point of tender also took longer than specified in the recipe as well. The flavour was nice, but I'm not sure that I'll make it again.
