This recipe was great. Very tasty! Instead of using the food processor to puree part of the soup, I just used a potato masher and mashed all the broccoli in the pan of broth. This made a very smooth soup. thanks for sharing!

I've been making this soup for years and my family loves it. Quick, easy, and usually have the ingredients on-hand. Glad to see it on food.com, it makes it easier to share with others!

Picky husband whose not a big broccoli fan really liked this tonight. A nice lighter version. Mine turned out a little thin. I have a cold so I couldn't really taste it unfortunately, but hubby says it's one he wants repeated. Thanks!

This soup is so good and very easy to make! I used more chicken broth, less milk, added garlic powder instead of garlic cloves, and blended part of soup before adding the cheese. We all really enjoyed this. Thanks for posting THE broccoli and cheese soup recipe I've been looking for!

I am on a low carb diet, so I used 1 1/2 c. half and half and 3 oz of cheese whiz and 3 oz. of pepper jack and 2 T. cornstarch. It was fantastic. Next time I wouldn't cook the broccoli so long, but it was very tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

Just as good, if not better, than the super fat-laden versions! I even used 1% milk! I liked the partially pureed texture. This soup will certainly satisfy your craving for a cheesey soup, without the high fat content. Thanx!

VNess, Im on a low cal diet, which as you know, sometimes means sacrificing taste. I was craving something cheesy, and I stumbled upon this recipe. I modified it for the diet and taste (I have an issue with using light cheese...lol). I used skim milk, fresh broccoli, and regular velveeta. This hit the spot!!! The taste was perfect! It came out a little thin, but that might be the skim milk. Nonetheless, fabulous!! (I'm thinking the leftovers will be a little thicker.) I got 9-1 cup servings out of this at 129 calories per serving!!! Diet comfort food at it's best! Thank you so much!!
