This was a great starter recipe. As many folks, I sometimes need to be pointed in the right direction and this recipe did that for me. I made some modifications based on what I had in the house and my own personal tastes. I reduced the chicken broth to one 48-oz container of low-sodium broth. I added two cloves of crushed garlic to the sautéed onions. I used three 10-oz packages of frozen chopped broccoli. At the end of the cooking time, I made a few passes with the hand blender to smooth out the soup but not enough to eliminate the texture. When it came time to add cheese, I used one half pound cubed processed cheese food and one pound of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. And to finish the soup, I added one cup of heavy cream instead of milk. The final modification was that I used potato starch instead of cornstarch to thicken it. Yes, I know it’s not low-calorie or low-fat, but it sure was good. Thanks for the recipe!
