    Serves: 6 

    • 850g frozen chopped broccoli
    • 1.2 litres chicken stock
    • 6 tablespoons margarine
    • 1 onion, chopped

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a large pot over medium heat, simmer the broccoli in the stock for 15 minutes. In a separate frying pan over medium heat, melt the margarine, add the onions and saute for 5 minutes or to desired tenderness.
    2. Add the flour to the onions and stir well, forming a pasty mixture. Gradually add the milk and stir until thick. Add this mixture to the broccoli mixture in the pot and stir well. Then add the cheese, stirring until melted. Finally, add the pepper. (Note: Be careful not to let the soup boil or the cheese will break down.)

    OMG. This was amazing. Instead of using prossed cheese I used 60g Extra mature chedder gratted. My 4 year old loved this. I served with homemade cheese and onion bread.  -  03 Feb 2014


    This is a very good recipe you can tweak. I have made it quite a few times. Unless you LOVE Velveeta, I would highly recommend using half cheddar cheese (otherwise your soup will taste more like Velveeta cheese dip). I always use 1 pound of velveeta and 1/2 - 3/4 pounds of cheddar and I always end up with restaurant quality soup. Also, remember to constantly stir the milk mixture "until it thickens" and you will have a nice and smooth, thickened soup. I do not use white pepper but put in a dash of regular pepper. Substituting a good portion of the velveeta with cheddar makes a great tasting, quality soup. My family loves it - even my three kids. I rate this 5 stars with the addition of cheddar. If I rated this using all Velveeta then the rating would have been 1 star.  -  22 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Ok, this is REALLY good, I'm eating it as I type. A few things...1) it makes A LOT. If you don't want enough for 10 people, half the recipe. 2) When you add the onion/flour/milk mixture to the broccoli, it looks TOTALLY unappetizing! Just keep plugging along . 3) You will think that you're adding an ungodly amount of cheese, but the recipe can handle it. It's not overly cheesy. Excellent!  -  13 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
