I got this recipe from Food Network website and changed it a little bit to my taste. It's great tasting and easy to make. Great comfort food on a rainy, cold day. You can use cauliflower as well. Hope you enjoy!

Excellent, and a great way to use up the rest of my potatoes & broccoli I had sitting around. I used a head of fresh broccoli instead of the boxed w/ cheese sauce, but added some shredded cheddar before serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan, over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the potatoes, thyme, salt, and broth and bring to a boil.
  4. Adjust the heat to maintain a gentle simmer, and cook uncovered until the potatoes are fork tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  5. Add the broccoli with cheese sauce.
  6. Simmer another 5-10 minutes.
  7. Puree the soup in batches in a blender or with an immersion blender.
  8. I like mine a little bit more chunky so I use
  9. a potato masher to smash the broccoli and potatoes leaving some texture in the soup.
  10. Bring to a simmer, taste, and season with salt
  11. and pepper.
  12. Enjoy!
