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

  • 1Melt oleo/butter in a large pot on medium high heat.
  • 2Add chopped onions and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently (until translucent).
  • 3Combine flour, garlic powder and nutmeg together. Stir into onion mixture until combined.
  • 4Whisk in chicken broth, cheese soup and milk.
  • 5Microwave 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.
  • 6Stir broccoli pieces into the soup mixture.
  • 7When heated through, stir in Velveeta cheese just until melted.
  • 8Season with salt and pepper to your preference.
  • 9If 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.
