    I didn’t have enough chicken stock, so I used some miso broth I happened to have. I also added a handful of fresh parsley…delicious! So much better than most broccoli soup recipes, and easy!

    Two quarts of chicken broth is way too much if you want anything near a ‘creamy’ soup. And if you want chunks of broccoli as the picture suggests, these need to be reserved before putting all the vegetables in the blender. Otherwise a good, light soup!
