Gently mix together all the ingredients to make everything combine well. Broccoli Note: We Love broccoli in our soup, but be prepared for the strong broccoli odor. To eliminate the cooked broccoli smell, you can par boil the broccoli first on the stove top, then add the broccoli to the soup about 15 minutes before the soup finishes.
