Description

Soup so thick it sticks to a spoon. Tastes like liquified Broccoli and Cheese. This recipe makes 2 liters of soup. Enough for a big hungry family.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Salted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 cups Beef Broth Or Bouillon
  • 3 cups Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1-½ cup Extra Sharp White Cheddar Shredded
  • 1-½ cup Extra Sharp Yellow Cheddar Shredded
  • 4 cups Steamed Broccoli Pulsed Into A Meal

Preparation

Melt butter in a large stock pot. Add onion and cook slowly until limp. Stir in flour and cook for 3 minutues, stirring. Slowly add the stock, milk and cream, alternating until all are combined. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Stir in the cheese and broccoli (see note below). Keep stirring until the cheese is completely melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

The longer this soup sits, the thicker it gets, until you end up with a soup that won’t fall off a spoon.

Note: to prepare the broccoli, steam until tender and pulse in a food processor until you get a meal-like consistency.

This looks great, but I just cook for me and my husband. Does this soup freeze well? That way, it’d be much easier to store big bunches for weeknight dinners.

I wish people would remove their ‘1-mitten’ reviews because of their own user error. This was absolutely delicious and the only probably I had was my bread bowls weren’t big enough so we had to get more than one ‘serving’!

I guess I should have read the reviews and comments before making this – I added the cheese as stated in the recipe (once the milk mixture is near boiling) and my cheese seperated. Super frustrated as I was looking forward to trying this. Lesson learned!

Loved the consistency of the soup (why didn’t I ever think of making the broccoli that consistency?!?) but had to add some extra seasonings to make it really pop. My kids loved it though, 2 and 3 bowls each! I’ll definitely make it again just adding some more spices.

Just make sure to add the cheese slowly and while its not boiling like the other reviewers stated and its pretty tasty!

Overall, it wasn’t bad for my first time making Broccoli Cheddar soup. However, it did lack that cheddar-y goodness that my family loves, even after adding extra cheese. It was thick, so I added a bit extra milk to thin it down a bit. I didn’t cook mine on high temp at all, and added all my ingredients slowly, so I suppose that is why my cheese didn’t do anything weird. Not bad.
