An excellent recipe for Cream of Broccoli Soup! I made this for a meeting and served it to about 40 women...a tough review crowd. I think the phrase I heard most often was, "This is the best Broccoli Soup I have ever eaten!" I must have handed out at least 20 recipes. I used cheddar cheese in place of the Velveeta...other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you Virginia!

It took a couple of trys to get the amounts "right" for this, but once I did, it was excellent! The Velveeta makes for such a creamy sauce that melts well. I did omit the celery just because I didn't have any and instead, added some shredded carrot. (Panera Bread Co. does this with their broccoli cheddar and it's great). I would recommend starting off lightly with the cheese as the first time I made it, it was much too rich. Great recipe!

I added cauliflower and mushrooms. All who tried this recipe gave it five stars.
