My 2 girls (ages 3 and 6) are kind of strange and they LOVE broccoli. So much. They’ll ask me to make broccoli if it’s been more than a week since I’ve made it last. So you can imagine how much they love this cream of broccoli soup. They devour it. It’s a big hit of a meal in my home.

If you’re looking for another broccoli soup, try this broccoli, carrot, and cheddar soup that I also really love.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Everyone needs a classic Broccoli cheddar soup. This is a great, tasty soup that is quick and ready to eat within 30 minutes. Serve with warm bread for a delicious meal.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: serves about 7-8 1x

Ingredients

Scale

1 medium onion, diced small

4 ½ cups chicken broth

67 cups of chopped broccoli (about 2 bunches)

2 bay leaves

½ teaspoon pepper

2 teaspoon salt

3 ½ cups milk

3/4 cup flour (1 cup if you like really thick soup)

½ cup cream

3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (preferable to not use pre-shredded)

Instructions

In a soup pot combine the onions, chicken broth, broccoli, bay leaves, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce heat to medium low and simmer till broccoli is soft and tender.

In a blender combine the milk (not cream!) and flour and blend on high till well combined.

Pour milk/flour mixture and cream into the pot and bring back to a simmer, until soup is nicely thick. Pour about 1/4 of the soup back into the blender and blend for about 5 seconds and pour back into the soup.

Add shredded cheese a handful at a time, stirring till melted and remove from heat.

Notes

This makes a decent amount of soup. I’ve had fine success in freezing this and reheating.

Halve the recipe if desired.
