"A great Cheese Soup recipe. It can be used as a light meal with salad, but we like it best with ham." — Aubra

salt and pepper to taste
processed cheese food (eg. Velveeta), cubed
This soup is awesome - just as good as Panera Bread's - and although the velveeta is easy, I've also used a plain old block of Kraft Sharp cheddar = and it works just as well!
It may be my fault the soup did not turn out as great as expected. I swapped Velveeta with real cheddar and it did not have a great consistency. Needed some seasoning too. Still on the search for a cheesy broccoli soup.
WOW! My family and friends loved this. Though I used the basic recipe, I have to admit to a few changes. I skipped the carrots and celery, and just added more broccoli, added a bit of garlic powder, and used 8 ounces of shredded chedder cheese instead of the processed cheese. My husband said it was better than any he had ever had anywhere!
I've never had the urge to publicly rate/review a recipe before (& I visit this site regularly!) until now. I made this soup with my 3 1/2 yr old and we absolutely loved it! It has the perfect amount of cheese without tasting "cheesy" and just right consistency. I used a large bag of frozen broccoli & cooked it with the celery & carrots (which I just chopped) according to the package directions and it turned out great! I can't wait for leftovers at lunch today!
I added extra broccoli and omitted the carrot and celery.For color and added flavor I used chopped tiny sweet peppers( red, yellow and orange) and white pepper. We love this,will make frequently.
Very good soup. My adjustments: double the broccoli and carrots; minced garlic added to onion-butter mix. I used mostly low-sodium broth (about 2 cups) and will use only low sodium broth next time. The process cheese was plenty salty for my taste and I wish I had not seasoned it with salt. Overall it was quite good and my husband ate about 4 bowls of it!
This soup was wonderful. I had been looking for a decent broccoli/cheese soup for a long time and this one was a winner. I decided to add some rice at the end and it was much better without it. I don't think this recipe needs any modifications!
This is delicious. I used a couple of different cheddar cheeses and it was really rich and creamy. A big hit at our house!
