    Hi, I love broccoli and tahini – but potatoes and parsnips not so much – any tips for substitutions? I saw carrots might work for parsnips – ideas for potatoes? Thanks!

    This soup is tasty and satisfying. I had lots of broccoli, potatoes and tahini on hand so I made the recipe. It was delicious and even my broccoli-hating husband said it was the best broccoli soup he had ever had….Wow! I did use chicken broth and had to leave out the cinnamon, still good. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Made this tonight for dinner. Overall a very easy dish to prepare. I made it with vegetable broth, which was very dark. Next time I may use chicken broth for aesthetics. I doubled the cayenne because we like a little more spice. It was very tasty, and I will make again. Next time, I may add a squeeze of lemon or lime to my bowl. Thanks for a great recipe!
