Best Broccoli Soup Recipe

Taste of Home does it again!   Another great recipe we tried out of Taste Of Home: Best Loved Recipes.  What a great cookbook!

Best Broccoli Soup Recipe is very easy to make.  This is a cream based soup and not cheesy so it pairs very nicely with grilled cheese sandwiches.
