So good, and yet so easy. Now you can re-create this one at home by tossing a few ingredients into a saucepan. Try to find one of the large 32-ounce cartons of chicken broth from Swanson—there's four cups in there, so it's perfect for this recipe. One big head of broccoli should provide enough florets for you. Use only the florets and ditch the tough stems, but be sure to cut the florets into bite-size pieces before dropping them in.

This has got to be the best soup I've ever had. Every time I make it it's a big hit.

I've made this recipe before and it's a great copy! Tastes very good, and has an awesome texture to it! When I can't afford to go to Friday's, I like to make this at home. Great for a cold day.
