We're big fans of soup in this house -- and I mean all of us. I love anything with vegetables, Kenya thinks drinking soup out of a cup is a blast and my husband is into anything that's healthy and keeps his waistline in check. Therefore, this recipe for broccoli soup fits the bill for all of us. You can even serve it to a 10-12 month old if you leave out the lemon juice.

Broccoli should be a regular food in everyone’s diet because it's a super veggie. It's packed with vitamins A and C, calcium and soluble fiber plus it's available year round. Even for kids that turn their noses up at vegetables, broccoli is one you can usually get them to eat because of it's mild flavor. I usually make a big batch of this soup because I like to freeze a few servings to have for another day. The only trouble is that it's usually gone before it ever makes it to the freezer!

    I can’t tell you how tasteful and yet simple this recipe is. I seldom cook and get the recipe right. It came up delicious. Just wondering, If I like the soup to be thicker, what can I add to thicken the soup? and How much? Thank you!

    Just a thought, would a sweet potato substituted for the white potato be awful?

      It would definitely change the flavor, but I bet it would be yummy!

    I love this recipe and so did my family!! I am doubling it tonight so that I’ll have some to keep in the freezer. It’s tasty with cheddar sprinkled on top or bacon bits (for the husband).
