    I made this yesterday. It's one of the easiest recipes for broccoli soup that I've ever tried. Highly recommend using less onion. Next time I make this, I will use a quarter of an onion, as opposed to one large onion, as the recipe calls for. Also, I used sharp cheddar cheese. It was delicious. Albeit a bit too 'oniony'. I reiterate...use less onion. I rated this a five star recipe for how easy and quick it is to make.

    I made 1/2 of the recipe and had a bowl of it, along with salad, for my lunch today. I used chicken broth (canned) and felt it was an overpowering flavor, compared to all the other broccoli/cheese soups I have tasted. Next time I would go with the bouillon and water to decrease the chicken flavor, but also realized that I used broth and not stock, so that might have made the difference, so didn't take stars away from the recipe for my mistake. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2012.

    It was my first time doing a broccoli & cheddar soup. Really yummy. I'm glad I tried. I used reduced sodium chicken stock and maybe a bit less of butter. I used part-skim cheddar cheese. I didn't use the paprika. It's really yummy and creamy. I didn't have to add more liquid. Thanks Ludwigj :)

    I made half the recipe and this is a delicious and creamy soup. I will make this again. Thanks for posting Ludwigj. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

    The only change i made to the recipe was I used 5tbs of margaine instead of the butter. It turned out fantastic. I will be making this again and again.


<p>I enjoy making freezer meals to make life a little easier on busy school nights. We also have a large garden in the summer so making a variety of meals with our fresh ingredients is fun!</p>
