I give the original recipe 4 stars. I give MY version 5 stars. Here's what I did: 1. I didn't have celery on hand, but I think it's a good idea. Instead I added about 3 cloves of garlic. (that's just a 'must-have' in a soup. sorry.) 2. My broccoli took 15 minutes to get tender. 3. Instead of blending all the soup, I blended HALF of it and left some broccoli so you can sink your teeth on something. ;) 3. I used 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of skim milk. (You can skip the cream altogether and use milk for it to be less fatty) 4. At the end, it seemed a little bit bland. So I added about a teaspoon of sea salt - in addition to the pepper to taste. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. (No, I'm not crazy.) It really added another dimension to the soup. It is a brilliantly easy recipe, but not as good as my version. ;) (at least to me.) Even the kids gobbled it up. O.O that's when you know a recipe is good - KIDS eating BROCCOLI?! Yup, this is a keeper. :D
