This is a great tasting soup. In a half hour you are sitting at the table enjoying this tasty creation. I followed the recipe exactly ecept that I used entirely old cheddar. I did use the hand blender to blend up the bigger pieces of broccoli but did leave it a bit chunky. It got a thumbs up and we will be having this one again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
This soup is wonderful and so fast and easy to make! I used fresh cauliflower and broccoli and cooked them in chicken broth, instead of using chicken bouillon. I then used my hand blender to puree some of the vegetables. Since my grocer didn't have Monterey jack cheese in stock, instead of using that and shredded cheddar, I bought a bag of nacho blend which is a combination of those two cheeses along with pepper jack. The entire bag was sufficient for the measurements required and the pepper jack gave a nice kick to the soup. Thanks for sharing!
I made this chowder for the weekly cookalong game and I'm so glad I did! I used half cauliflower and half broccoli, soy cheese(a mix of cheddar and jack) and left out the red pepper. Oh, and I ran out of milk so only used 3 cups. This was satisfying! Thanks newspapergal!
