Thanks. That sounds great. Yum. I'll keep this recipe for next winter. I'm really hoping spring comes soon and I can quit with the soup. LOL.

RE: broccoli and potato soup

Sounds great!

RE: broccoli and potato soup

That soup sounds really good. I am wondering what the point of using self rising flour and not just all purpose flour? I seldom have self rising flour on hand and don't see the reason for having baking powder in the recipe. Sure sounds good though. Will have to get some broccoli and try it.


RE: broccoli and potato soup

I was wondering the same thing. I've honestly never seen a soup recipe with self rising flour.

RE: broccoli and potato soup

I think that it was mainly to get a rise out of you gals.

RE: broccoli and potato soup

Hmmm...never even thought about the self-rising flour issue... I keep both on hand, just for this reason. When a recipe calls for one or the other. I guess it would not matter. Mr. Joyful guy, that was a good funnie!! LOL

RE: broccoli and potato soup

Oh, you are making me hungry!
