New Meal Monday–Brocolli Cheese Soup

I have a deep passion for many things…one is soup…I love a good hearty soup. This broccoli cheese soup is incredible. Basic ingredients…but when mixed into one pot all together—they are anything but basic (I told you, I have a passion here…) Ok here it is…one thing…don’t freeze it. Cream based soups in general don’t freeze well. But it does keep great in the fridge for a good 5 days or so. Yummo…enjoy!

Here is what you are going to need
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter
  • 4 bunches of fresh broccoli (heads)
  • 1/2 C flour
  • one box of low sodium chicken broth (32 oz about)
  • 2 C. heavy cream
  • 8 oz Velveeta cheese
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t black pepper

  • Melt butter in large pot
  • Chop up 3 bunches of the broccoli
  • When butter is melted, place broccoli in pot heat for 5 minutes, Med. heat
  • Stir in the flour
  • Combine the broccoli and the flour.
  • Slowly add the chicken broth while stirring. It will not look that yummy yet…trust me..
  • Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the heavy cream slowly.
Here is where you will need either this…
which is so great when you are making soups (you just blend away right in the pot)
  • If you don’t have that….then you will carefully need to transfer the hot liquid into your blender.
  • Please be very careful when blending something like hot liquid—it expands.
  • You could also use a Cuisinart (be careful ;)
  • After you blended the soup, return it to the pot you cooked it in and heat again.
  • Add the cubed up Velveeta cheese and remaining chopped broccoli bunch. Let it heat and melt the cheese.
  • Ready to serve!!!
Serve with your favorite sandwich or a salad :)
