Broccoli Cheese Soup VIII

Recipe by  

"This is really yummy and cheesy soup. Every time I've made it, people beg for the recipe! I use the (non-metallic) pot of my slow cooker to cook this soup in the microwave, but you can cook it more slowly in the slow cooker itself if you prefer. This is especially great with bread bowls."

Directions

  1. Steam the broccoli in a steamer or in a colander over boiling water until tender and bright green, 15 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl, combine half-and-half, 2 cups water and cheese. Cook in microwave until cheese is melted and smooth, stirring every 2 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper and garlic powder and cook 2 minutes more. In a separate bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining 2 cups water, stirring to dissolve. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the soup. Return the soup to the microwave, heating and stirring every 2 minutes until thick. Stir in broccoli; heat once more and serve.

This recipe is much too large to be prepared in a standard size microwave oven. I made the full batch in my slow cooker, and it was filled to the brim. It was OK, though the taste of processed cheese was heavier than I tend to prefer.

Recipe was ok, but will probably try a different recipe next time I make it.

This is a nice recipe to add dices of ham and potatoes too

I used 3 bunches of fresh broccoli and I added bacon. I thought it was pretty good although not good enough to eat again the next day. The recipe made more than I thought it would. I might make this again but I will probably try a different recipe first.
