I had a can of cheddar cheese soup in my cupboard. I don't why I bought it, but I wanted to use it. So, I searched for various recipes to make this soup using a can of cheddar cheese soup in the recipe. I really couldn't find one that I liked. So, this is my version. We had it for dinner this evening and it got "two thumbs up" from by husband. He's a pretty picky eater, so I felt like I won an "Oscar."

How to Make Broccoli Cheese Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt oleo/butter in a large pot on medium high heat.
  2. Add chopped onions and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently (until translucent).
  3. Combine flour, garlic powder and nutmeg together. Stir into onion mixture until combined.
  4. Whisk in chicken broth, cheese soup and milk.
  5. Microwave frozen broccoli for approx. 4 minutes. The broccoli needs to be just barely tender. If the broccoli pieces are large mince to the size you desire.
  6. Stir broccoli pieces into the soup mixture.
  7. When heated through, stir in Velveeta cheese just until melted.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to your preference.
  9. If desired use a stick blender and blend soup to desired consistency. My broccoli was chopped on the small side right out of the bag, so I left it as is and didn't do anything else to it.
  10. Enjoy!! We sure did!!!!!!!!!!
