This broccoli soup is very cheesy. You can use any type of cheese that you like or have on hand. The taste of the soup depends largely upon the flavors in your chicken broth, so choose a good quality broth for this. I use homemade chicken broth with lots of celery, onion and carrot flavors, but a good quality canned variety should also work.
"Great soup! I had a bunch of left over broccoli from dinner ( a very rare thing around here) and whipped up a batch of this soup. It was tasty last night and even better today. Yum"- jillwiedenman

1. Rinse broccoli florets. Put enough water in the bottom of a 2 quart sauce pan to cover the bottom. Add broccoli and salt to taste if desired. Cook over medium heat until tender. Drain and set aside.
2. In a 3 quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and salt and pepper. Gradually stir in milk, half and half, and chicken broth. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens and begins to boil.
3. Add cheese. Stir until melted.
4. Add broccoli. Cover and simmer on low heat until broccoli begins to fall apart (About 20 - 30 minutes.)

hotmommapeck 1 month agoA very good soup. Instead of half and half I used just regular milk and added more flour for a thicker soup. My family loved it.

ebaravik 2 years agoThis soup was so delicious. I used 3 cups of shredded sharp cheddar because my family really loves cheese. What a wonderfully easy, from-scratch recipe!
mimi523 3 years agoThought it was very good, but next time will use a little milder cheddar to have a creamier taste (I used sharp tonight).
