Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup - Tinalicious

If you're a Broccoli Cheese Soup fan like I am, I think you're going to love it. And easy recipes are always great when you just want a little something to eat. I'm sure you don't have anything more important to do right now anyway, am I right?

So here we go.

Easy Broccoli Cheese Soup
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • 3-4 Cups Fresh Broccoli, chopped small or diced
  • 4 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 Teaspoon Thyme
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream (You can substitute Light Cream, if you like)
  • 2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese (I used Kraft, but you can use fresh grated)

  1. In a large saucepan, cook butter and onions over medium heat until onion softens (about 3 minutes). 
  2. Add chicken broth, broccoli and seasonings. Simmer until the broccoli is softened, about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Place flour in a small bowl. Add in the cream a little at a time, and keep stirring until it's smooth. 
  4. Bring the vegetables and broth to a boil and whisk in the cream & flour mixture. Continue whisking until it's thick and bubbly, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, then stir in the cheeses until they're melted. 
  6. Serve immediately. Approximately 4 servings.
Once you've cooked up this amazingly easy and oh so yummy soup, you can expect some reactions from your happy little family...
