    Delish's Note:

    This is a yummy and easy soup to throw together. Cheese compliments broccoli and potatoes so well. Ultimate comfort food when the weather starts to get colder. I love to serve it with homemade rolls or bread and a salad. I make it with skim milk to cut back on calories but feel free to substitute whole milk or half-and-half for a creamier soup. If I'm really short on time, I just throw in a can of diced, already cooked potatoes towards the end of the cooking time until they are heated through. If you want a thicker soup, just add desired amount of flour mixed until smooth with an equal amount of water. Mmmmmm....

      My family LOVES this soup, and it's so versatile! We didn't have broccoli on hand, so I used cauliflower instead. I did make a couple changes, just to make cooking a little easier: I used 2 cans of chicken broth, cooked the chopped cauliflower (doubled the amount) in the soup at the same time I added the diced potatoes, added garlic powder, and only used 1 1/3 cups cheese. For those who have never made a creamy cheese soup before, it really helps to turn the heat down to low for a few minutes BEFORE adding in the cheese. This will prevent curdling, which looks really un-appetizing!

      I made this last night and will make it again. I liked the flavor and texture a lot. Next time, I will chop the broccoli much finer and put it in immediately with the potatoes so that it is cooked to mush. It was a little crunchy for a soup the way I did it. I didn't have celery, so I grated a carrot instead and added a shallot and some garlic. I will keep these changes, as they seemed to work well.

      Love, love, love! I've made this a few times now and have completely vetoed adding any salt. I also just throw the raw broccoli directly into the soup and let it cook instead of pre-steaming. Great recipe!
