i just made broccoli soup last week. this recipe is very similar to what i did. I like to use condensed fat free milk, just seems creamier overall. also, to kick up the protein a bit, i pureed a can of canelinni beans (and white, mild flavored will do) - it added a almost cheesy quality to it. i do very much love cheese in my broccoli soup, so instead of adding it into the whole pot i just sprinkle when heating.
