This easy to make soup packs a lot of nutrition with few calories. Delicious any time, but especially on chilly nights.

    This was great! I love broccoli soup anyway but appreciate the way the potatoes, celery and feta cheese are added. I used grated parmesan on my bowl the last night instead of feta ( I was out) and it was still outstanding. Thank you! <3
