Cheesy Broccoli Soup

There are some who like cream of broccoli soup with cheese in it, and there are some who like cheesy soup with broccoli in it ;) We are the latter! I have never been successful at making broccoli soup, but this recipe was easy peasy and delicious! Let us know if you try it!

I halved this recipe and it was enough to feed three adults and leave a bowl of leftovers :)


  • 2 cubes butter
  • 1 C flour
  • 8 C water and 8 tsp. chicken bouillon OR 8 C chicken broth
  • 1/2-1 lb Velveeta cheese
  • 1 large bunch broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 pt. whipping cream
  • Diced onion
  • 1 C diced celery (optional) 

  1. Melt butter, add onion and celery (if used), and cook 5-10 minutes until onion and celery are soft.
  2. Add flour and mix well.
  3. Slowly add chicken broth and heat through. 
  4. Add broccoli and simmer 30 minutes. 
  5. Add cheese, stir until melted, add cream, and heat through.
