I thought I found the perfect broccoli soup (Uncle Bill's #19107), but wanted to try one that used cheese. Now I have two favorite broccoli soups, and both are easy and delicious. I did substitute sharp chedder, and melted it into the white sauce; then added the sauce to the vegetable soup. While the soup tasted great that way, I then incorporated one of Uncle Bill's soup secrets--a tablespoon of soy sauce. You will not detect any soy sauce taste, but it does impart a more robust flavor. Thanks Barb, for sharing another great recipe--all yours sound good.
Velveeta! You have to be kidding, this is not even cheese. As some of the members have done, please substitute with cheddar or even swiss cheese.
Really very good. Doubled the white sauce as it was too thin, added 1T soy sauce and used shredded mozzarella cheese as it was all we had.
This was great! Only bad thing is that this is one of those hearty soups that fills you up very quickly! I barely ate enough to fill up a coffee mug. I added a dash of cayene pepper and used about 6oz of velvetta and 4 oz shredded sharp cheese. Used 1 cup half and half and 1 cup evaporated milk. served this with crusty bread and some oven roasted chicken wings. Dipping the bread in the soup was my favorite part. I only wish I could've ate more!
This is such a great recipe!!!! I added a ton more broccoli and about 4 more sticks of celery, plus two cloves of garlic. Plus, I used cornstarch instead of flour, cream instead of milk, and I used 150g of Boursin cheese instead of Velveeta. Thanks so much for posting this!!!! ~~
Barbara,this is a very good cream of broccoli soup. I do wish it had been thicker,I like it extra thick.I will just add more butter and flour the next time I make the soup. I served the soup with sourdough bread.Yum! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
Yummy! And even better the next day! Thanks for sharing - a great way to use broccoli when it is on sale.
Another fabulous recipe Barb! I added about 1/8 tsp cayenne (could have used more) and a 1/2 tsp thyme. I also used about 5 cups broccoli (just to use up what I had) and about 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese. DH loved it! Thanks for sharing.
Very good. Even my husband liked it and he is not a soup guy! I will probably try it with cheddar next time and see how that compares. With the leftover soup the next day I added some leftover baked potato chunks and shredded chicken... that was quite good too!
AWESOME! Did it exactly as it states but whenever I have Cream of Broccoli soup I love to crumble Ritz crackers on the top. Since this has Velveeta in it I was inspired to crumble up both Ritz and Cheeze It crackers onto the top. I will make this over and over again!
