This is my grandmas recipe. She makes this every year for lunch on Christmas along with her barley soup, which I haven't gotten the recipe for, yet:). It's not thick. Thin and creamy! Soooo good! My favorite soup.

How To Make broccoli cheese soup

  • 1
    Bring 6 cups of water to a boil. While that is working, finely dice broccoli, onion and celery. I use my food processor and mince. When water starts to boil, add your veggies and boil for 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Then add seasonings and cheese. Stir until cheese is melted.
  • 3
    Add half and half and butter. Bring to a boil. For thickening, whisk 1/2 cup flour with 1/2 cup water. Slowly pour into soup, whisking as you pour. I always add this.
