Thank goodness…high fiber that doesn’t involve another bowl of cereal…sigh. This soup looks awesome…I definitely will enjoy making it.

The calendar tells me that we’re well into Spring, but when I look out the window I still see piles of snow (6 inches just last night). So comfort food and soups still occupy front and center of my meal plans. I love that this soup is lighter than the standard broccoli cheese soup—and provides a heaping serving of vegetables. Well done!

Hi Michelle, thank you – in fact, soups are part of my meal plan all year long. Some say that to stay healthy you need to eat a soup a day. Not sure if anyone can manage that lol but there is something interesting about it 🙂
