Made this for a 5-course meal for my mother and two sisters, which was my gift to my mother this last Christmas. All three of them were excited about broccoli soup, and they were impressed with this one. My sister said the soup was "very soothing" before asking for another bowl. I was going to bring some to my sick housemate, but he had fallen asleep.
I followed the original recipe almost exactly (minus for exact measurements) except I used whipping cream instead of milk, and liquid veggie bouillon instead of meaty. All went well. The 1 cup of cheddar was fine, as the cream cheese was a nice, subtle cheesiness that tied together the cheddar with the cream nicely. I left the broccoli pretty chunky and it was good too -- though I can imagine this would be great as a blended chowder soup too!
