My own invention because I can't swallow solid foods and have Severe GERD. I needed a way to get the nutrients I was missing. I love vegetables but can't eat them. I also didn't want to get a lot of calories and fat so I found a wonderful way to make soups like Cream of Broccoli without the high fat and calories of the usual recipes. I hope you enjoy creating your own versions and look forward to hearing about your 'inventions'.

    You will notice that I have added no salt or spice. There is salt in the broth and it seems to be more than adequate. The possible variations here are endless and only limited by your imagination. If you do not suffer from GERD or heartburn, you may want to use pepper, chili's or other spices. Enjoy experimenting and creating your own "Cream" of Vegetable soups.
