Cream of broccoli soup is a fast and easy option for a full-flavored meal any time of year.
Cooking tip: Once you begin to add the milk and sour cream, make sure to not bring the soup to a boil or you run the risk of curdling. If you're reheating it in a microwave, be sure to heat only on 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds.
