    Absolutely terrible. So disappointed. This is the second soup I have tried and the second major disappointment. You really need to work on your soup recipes. They are very bland and tasteless.

    I loved this! Very tasty. I made a few alterations. I used ground double fine mustard powder instead of nutmeg and pepper jack cheese. Had a good kick.

    I’ve only tried one, and it was so bad I was afraid to try the rest. I’m a foodie and I want flavorful, interesting foods. I’m with you, Lisa.

    Do you have to steam broccoli or can you just add fresh?
