Broccoli Cheese Soup

Sharing with your friends!

I made this awesome Broccoli Cheese soup last weekend that was so cheesy and so creamy, I had to share it with you.  I know I’ve really been on a soup kick lately, posting my loaded potato soup and creamy tomato basil soup, but hey, what’s one more soup recipe among friends?


Broccoli and Cheddar Soup Pin

I love how easy this recipe is to put together.  The only “work” that really goes into it, is chopping the onion and broccoli.  Other than that, you just measure out your milk and cream, and let the soup simmer.  

Easy see.



What really made this recipe  was using an extra sharp white cheddar. Since cutting out processed foods in June, we have only been using blocks of cheese and grating our own. Also, we have only been buying white cheddar, since your typical cheddar has artificial coloring in it to make it that orange color everyone.  For this recipe, we used Tillamook brand, extra extra sharp white cheddar.  YUM!



If you like your broccoli cheese soup chunky, you can skip the puree-ing part, but I personally do not like taking a big spoonful of broccoli.  I like the flavor, but don’t care for the texture.
