My daughter asks me to make this soup all the time. She and my other kiddos are huge broccoli lovers (we all are, actually). It’s a pretty funny sight when I’m in the kitchen chopping broccoli for this soup. They all gather around me begging for broccoli. I have to always remember to buy extra so we have enough to actually put some in the soup!

This soup just screams comfort food to me. It’s thick and hearty, rich and creamy, and of course, cheesy! Serve it with some fresh baked bread or even serve it in bread bowls! I hope you love it as much as we do!

    Is chicken stock the same as chicken broth?

    Hi,
    I hope you don’t mind me saving this recipe because I definitely want to try it ASAP! I have a bit of confusion about your instructions.. You said:

    Are you saying to add all veggies except one cup of broccoli? Or one cup of each veggie?

    • says

      So sorry for the confusion, Ruby. Add everything except one cup of broccoli. Hope you enjoy the soup! :)

    I made this last night – and it is amazing! I made adjustments – used real garlic, pureed the soup, and used aged extra sharp cheese (I also used homemade stock). I’m not a fan of broccoli cheese soup – but I loved this! Thank you for sharing this.
