This was a great base to start w/but I tweaked it a bit b/c I'm vegetarian and wanted a Broccoli Cheese Soup. This will be my permanent recipe, b/c it was perfect. My changes: 1/2 lg red onion, 2 stalks celery, a few handfuls of baby carrots (chopped), 4c. Unchicken Broth, 2c. Low Sodium Vegetable Broth, 2.5 lbs of broccoli florets, 3 c. Rice Milk, 1 c. Fat Free Half and Half, 1 sprig fresh marjoram, 1/8 -1/4 of a block of fat free cream cheese (gave it more body) and a bit of light Velvetta. For the roux I used a butter, EVOO blend w/spelt flour, sea salt and white pepper.
I found a huge bag of broccoli florets @ Sam's Club/Costco so that really helped things along. I prefer a chunkier soup so I just used my hand blender and blended half of the soup or so. The broccoli was really tender when all was said and done anyway. It was really very, very good.
