About this recipe: This soup is so delicious, even the kids will love it. Broccoli is simmered with potatoes in a cheesy cream soup base. It's the perfect winter warmer. Serve with fresh bread, if desired.
This is a nice recipe. I added some nutmeg and a dash of tumeric and some carrots. - 05 May 2012
I just finished eating this wonderful yummy soup, and it was so easy to make. I did make a few adjustments: I used 4 cups cubed russet potatoes, 1 1lb. bag frozen broccoli flowets, 1 c. chopped onion as I thought 2 cups would be over powering, in place of the bouillion cubes and 5 cups of water I used 2 14oz. cans chicken broth and 1 cup water also added 3 crushed garlic cloves, and only used 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese. I cooked the broccoli in with the potatoes as other reviewers suggested and then pureed 1/2 the soup and it turned out nice and creamy. This will be a regular in our house during the winter months. Thanks Ruth for sharing this 5 ***** recipe. - 27 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Awesome! Of note, you can add raw broccoli to the soup a few minutes prior to pureeing in a blender. This way, you don't have to cook the broccoli separately. I also added white pepper, red pepper flakes, savory, and garlic powder. Next time, I'll definitely saute garlic with the onion, as I think that would make this awesome soup even better! - 11 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
