Creamy Broccoli Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MsLedByFred

I found this recipe in a newspaper from a lady in western Pennsylvania and found it to be the best broccoli soup I have tasted. I always omit the nutmeg, and use broccoli florets instead of chopped broccoli.You can also substitute cauliflower or chopped spinach too. This could also be a vegetarian soup.It is not for the dieters.

Very, very thick and rich. I used real cheddar in place of Velveeta, but otherwise followed the recipe. Although it was good, I would have liked more broccoli and more flavor in the soup. I would probably double the broccoli, add more milk and maybe some garlic next time. Maybe even decrease the cream cheese a little. Thanx for posting!
