Count on having dinner on the table in about 40 minutes, and serve this soup the moment it’s done for the best results. In fact, if you wait, you’ll find it gets too thick with time. If you have leftovers, you will want to thin the soup with a little chicken broth or milk to the desired consistency.
If the broccoli florets are large, break them into smaller pieces at the stalk instead of chopping them; they’ll cook more quickly.
