Broccoli Cheese Soup

Here’s a quick, delicious and healthy dinner. Broccoli Cheese Soup. Only thing I would do different next time is make more! Everyone gobbled theirs up and were looking for seconds and thirds! I only used one head of broccoli next time I will use two.

Broccoli Cheese Soup:

Sautée for a few minutes in soup pot:

Olive oil
1 large chopped onion
2 stalk chopped celery
4-5 cloves garlic diced
Sprig of thyme
Sprig of rosemary
Sprig of oregano
Salt and lots of pepper


Chopped broccoli
Enough chicken stock to just cover broccoli

Cook for 15 minutes

In a separate pan make a roux:

3 tbsp butter and 3 tbsp flour – cook for a few more minutes

Then add:

2 cups of milk (I used 3.25% because we have it for the kids)

Cook that for ten minutes stirring often

Add 1/2 shredded spicy cheese (I used habanero jack)

Use an immersion blender for the broccoli and stock then add creamy mixture

Serve with chives and shredded cheddar

  1. I love broccoli cheese soup!
    The only big difference in my recipe, is after the broccoli is soft, I puree it and put it back in. It makes my soup ‘stick to your ribs’ thick. And I don’t use as much cream. I’m going to try the spicy cheese next time!
