This turned out to be an easy and delicious soup although the original ingredients were a little bland for my taste. I ended up adding 3 more boullin cubes and added some chopped onions to add a little more flavor. Read More

I mixed the flour with the cream cold because flour usually lumps unless mixed with a cold liquid. It worked just fine this way too. Good recipe but cheddar would be better (and healthier). Read More

This is a good recipe to encourage a reluctant broccoli eater especially if they like cheese. I have been trying to copy Quizno s (a fast food place) broccoli cheese soup and this comes close. While the cheese was melting in a smaller pot the frozen broccoli was simmering in a soup pot with the instant chix stock (I used 3t of chicken base like a previous reviewer)and the water used to reconstitute it about 4 oz. Extra cheddar cheese and milk took the place of the cream since I rarely have it. Turned out great. Read More

This was pretty tasty. I used real aged cheddar instead of the processed cheese. Very hearty. Read More

This was my first ever try at making Broccoli Cheese Soup and I made it for a group of 16 women! I tripled the recipe but had LOTS left over. I could have doubled it and there would have been plenty. They all loved it and told me it was better than Panera's! (a local favorite)I personally thought it could use a little more broccoli and I did not like the vague amount of water it called for in the recipe but I used commom sense and added just enough water to thin it out some. Delicious!! Read More

OH MY GOSH this is such a wonderful easy and delicious soup. I can never get my kids to eat broccoli and I made this cause I was craving this soup and had the kids do a taste test and they could not believe that broccoli taste that good...I did add 3 extra teaspoons of chicken boullion and I also cut up 1 can of sliced potatoes in it and I omitted the water and we liked it cheesey so we added 3 1/2 cups of cheese...
