It's snowing and I wanted something quick, easy and hot. I had everything on hand. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I used my potato masher. This was good but I would have liked it a bit thicker. I also added a good bit of pepper and some salt.
Boy do I feel healthy after eating this soup! I could never get my family to eat a whole pound of vegetables served plain, but they gobbled this down. This is an easy recipe to put together quickly. I'd been waiting for a cold night to make it and I got one. It's rainy and cold and a perfect soup night. I served this with homemade French bread. I made the cheese cubes about 1" and would make them smaller next time as they didn't melt quite as easily as I would have liked. I used vegetable broth to make this vegetarian as well. I used my immersion blender to make it nice and smooth - right there in the same pot. Thanks for a great recipe!
This is a wonderful go-to recipe for the novice cook or anyone crunched for time. I sometimes sneak in some asparagus spears too. Try serving this soup with some chopped chives and breadsticks.
This is the 1st review I have ever written. This recipe was so easy and delicious!! I used leftover broccoli/cauliflower/carrots with homemade chicken broth and used the blender method suggested. The soup turned out a wonderful consistency and all of my family loved it, even my 4 yo, 2 yo and 15 mo. I will definitely be making this again. Much better than canned cream of broccoli soup!
Very easy to make! I used fresh broccoli and cauliflower, so I had to cook for a little longer. I added chopped onion for extra flavor, and was happy I did. I used my immersion blender to blend. The velveeta does thicken it a bit, but not much. This is a great quick-fix when you're craving a cheesey creamy soup. Thanx!
