In saucepan, sauté Yves Veggie Bacon, onion and celery in oil over medium heat for 5 minutes or until onions are soft.

Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove saucepan from heat for two minutes.

Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) of stock, stirring until flour absorbs liquid and mixture is smooth. Continue adding liquid until all stock is added to pot.

Return saucepan to heat and add potatoes. Bring soup to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are cooled.

Add broccoli and cook for 5 minutes.

In bowl or small saucepan, combine hot milk, cream (if using), salt, pepper and parsley. Add 1-2 cups (125-250 mL) of hot soup stock to this milk mixture and return milk blend to pot. This prevents milk from curdling when it is added to the hot soup.

Heat through (without boiling), adjust seasoning and serve.
