Cream Of Cheddar Broccoli Soup Recipe

Updated on January 12, 2015

So many parents have a hard time getting their children to consume the proper amount of fruits and veggies into their diets, but adding something as little as some good-for-you cheese can make the world of difference.

If I were to have tried feeding my kids just plain old broccoli soup, I know I would have heard nothing but moaning and groaning, but adding cheese into the title (and recipe), and they think, "well I love cheese, this should be okay". After their bowls were empty, each one admitted how good the soup was even though it was broccoli soup. Sometimes I will make some homemade biscuits to go with the soup too, and the kids love those as well.

I do have a homemade recipe that I have used for the cream base for my soup as well, but using a pre-done base makes this meal so much easier, quicker, and less dishes (which is a plus for most households).

Cook Time

Prep Time: 10-20 minutes

Total Time: 30-60 minutes

Serves: 3-6

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg Knorr Broccoli Soup Mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 full stalk of fresh broccoli
  • cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Empty packet into a pot
  2. Pour in 2 cups water
  3. Add 2 cups milk
  4. (whisk this together so there are no clumps)
  5. Turn your soup on medium heat and start dicing your broccoli, gradually adding it in as you cut
  6. Grate your cheddar cheese while your soup cooks
  7. Cook it until your broccoli is almost at your preferred texture (I put mine on a low simmer). You need to stir it quite often to stop it from sticking or burning to the bottom.
  8. Add your grated cheddar cheese. When melted, it is ready to eat.

The best thing to cook with in the kitchen is Cast Iron.

Not only does it help prevent burning with a super thick base, but you get those much needed minerals you can only get from IRON. This pot does more than just cook your meals.

Whisking is the best way to stir soup making sure not to allow any nasty clumps to form in your delicious, creamy soup.

Finding a durable whisk with non slip handles will not only help with slipping, but won't heat up and burn you when you have come back to stir something.

Cutting boards are one the things in the kitchen that are used (or should be used) on a daily basis.

Save your counter tops so they will last a lifetime by using cutting boards. Natural is always best in my eyes, and what's more natural than wood?

      @sara0129: When you start a base off with a package or canned soup and add from there, it is super fast to just make it up and have this cheddar broccoli soup in no time flat!

      @Otto Phillips: Grilled Cheese sandwiches are a fan favourite around our home when eating soup. I love to dip our 11 month old's grilled cheese into this hearty cheddar broccoli soup, and she devours it!

      @Lorelei Cohen: It's amazing the little things that we can add to a normal can or package of soup that can make it healthier and more delicious for sure!

      I often use a can soup mix and then add in vegetables or noodles to add body to the soup. It is amazing how you can spruce up a meal and if you are using broccoli in the recipe you know that it is going to be healthy.
