Can anything else be used in place of the chicken bouillon?
For this soup you can replace the skim milk with Vegetable or Chicken stock and you will have a delicious soup.

Can this soup be frozen after I make it?
I do not recommend freezing this soup. When reheating the milk and cheese it may separate. This soup can be held in the refrigerate for 3-4 days.

Is the ingredient listed near the end as 1/2 chicken or vegetable bullion supposed to be 1/2 cup?
No it is a half of a chicken bouillon cube or half of a vegetable bullion cube.

Is steaming the broccoli necessary or is it okay to just put frozen broccoli directly into the Vitamix? Thank you.
I made this recipe but didn't read the fact that the broccoli needs to be steamed; it tasted like I was eating grass. I will try again and follow the recipe exactly next time....

Can this be made in S series with same measure ?
Yes this can be made in the S series with the same amount of ingredients. The S series will heat the soup in a different amount of time than our traditional models. We do not recommend going over 7 minutes and 30 seconds in your blend time.
