    Hi. I am the original poster of this recipe. I have since found Knorr cream of Potato soup to be a better choice. It is rich and thicker. I use 3 1/2 cups water and then at the end add 1/2 cup of 10% cream.  -  20 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought the flavor of this recipe was great, but the technique for preparation was horrible and the soup came out lumpy with gobs of cheese making the broccoli stick together in clumps, making it almost inedible. Next time I make this, I will do what I thought about doing and should have done in the first place, which is to make a kind of roux with all of the wet ingredients, then add the cheese in gradually until melted, adding the broccoli last. That's the way I've always made broccoli Cheddar soup in the past and it has never turned out so disastrously as the method in thes recipe! It makes for a much smoother texture all around.  -  02 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Came out a little thinner than I wanted, so next time I will only use 3 c water- but SOOO delicious. I added a whole cup of milk instead of 1/2c. And used regular chicken buillion cubes instead of the cauliflower soup mix. Added salt and pepper and much extra cheese and this is delicious! Couldn't stop eating it!  -  31 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
