"A creamy broccoli soup that will please the most fussy eater, even children love it. Complement with crusty Italian bread for a quick, easy meal. For variety, try substituting cauliflower, shredded carrots, or any combination of the three vegetables, keeping the total amount to 4 cups vegetables." — Pam Zielinski

fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
1 1/2 quarts
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
condensed cream of celery soup
shredded Cheddar cheese
I used this recipe yesterday, and it was delicious! I did add grated carrots, one can cream of celery, and one can cream of mushroom soup. I also omitted the cornstarch and water, I thicken all of my soups with powdered mashed potatoes, you can make it as thick or thin as you want that way, and it is much easier than cornstarch, with the added nutrition. EXCELLENT!!
I had a hard time getting mine to thicken up. I added a small onion for flavor. Next time, I think I'll add more broccoli--I think the fact that the broth was so thin made the broccoli seem even more sparse. BUT the flavor was pretty good and it was an easy meal.
Oh yeah, you guys were right; this soup is definitely up there with Paneras! It was also one of the quickest soups I've ever made as it took me all of fifteen minutes. I used frozen broccoli and once thawed in the broth, I took the vegies out and chopped them in my food processor. I didn't have any celery soup in the house, so I used a "healthy" cream of chicken instead. I added some of my own seasonings including cayenne for a little kick, otherwise I followed the recipe. Absolutely delicious Pam and thanks!
Oh my goodness, this was DELICIOUS!!! It tasted just like Ruby Tuesdays! It had nothing but rave reviews all around!! I did however add more cheese than called for because I love cheese. It just made it more rich and delicious. A definate to make. Relativly easy too. Five stars all the way!
12/23/03 - Made again tonight, just as delicious as the first time. My one year old son LOVED this.
My brother doesn't like broccoli, but he loved this soup! My father likes a "beefier" soup, so I added chopped potatoes, carrots, celery, and noodles. The soup is pretty salty, but not overly so. I used the leftovers for a topper for baked potatoes the next day.
The recipe as is is kinda bland. I made some adjustments to add flavor. I used 1 can cr. celery & 1 can cr. chicken. I added diced carrots, 1 onion, black pepper & garlic. This soup was so good my family requested I make more as soon as it was gone. Will definitely make again.
I made 1/2 batch, and it turned out great
This is fantastic. I used about 1/2 tbls more corn starch and half and half instead of milk. I left out the 1/2 cup of water as suggested and added the corn starch to the milk (half and half)and soup mix instead. This is def a re-do.
