cheesy broccoli soup

This cheesy broccoli soup is such a comfort food to me! It totally met my expectations and was delicious. It is also a soup that you can make rather quickly. The best part is it doesn't call for any cream of cheddar condensed soup or anything like that. Granted, it isn't a low fat recipe, but it also doesn't have any creepy ingredients. I am keeping this recipe and adding it to my recipe binder for sure! Next time, I am thinking it would be great in homemade bread bowls. Mmmm!

  • 1 16 ounce package of frozen organic broccoli
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups organic chicken broth
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  1. Cook broccoli in microwave as directed on package
  2. While broccoli cooks, melt butter in pot
  3. Add onions and cook until they are translucent
  4. Stir in four
  5. Slowly add chicken broth and cream
  6. Stir and cook until it thickens
  7. Chop up broccoli if needed or desired
  8. Add salt, cooked broccoli, and cheese
  9. Continue to stir until ready to serve


  1. a very timely recipe since i def have broccoli to use up today and actually have everything else on this list!

  2. this is crazy--i made this exact soup on wednesday from my betty crocker cookbook. (except fresh instead of frozen broccoli & milk instead of cream.)

    it's one of the few soups my husband actually likes as a meal.
