Add in a tad bit at a time and stir, and then see what you thick. This simple soup recipe is already pretty thick but you can always add some more thickness to it to match your soup preference.
How do you store leftover broccoli soup?
Thankfully this makes a large batch of soup which means that there are going to be leftovers! The best way to store leftover soup is to add it to a large container with a lid.
