Homemade Broccoli Cheese Soup

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion (white or yellow)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 5-6 cups (about 30-36 ounces) chopped broccoli
  • 4 cups milk (I use 2%)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (use 2/3 cup if you want it extra thick)
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) freshly grated Swiss cheese


In a large saucepan (6-quarts or so), add the chicken broth, onion, salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer and add the broccoli (it won’t be completely covered with liquid). Cover the pot and cook for 8-9 minutes until the broccoli and onions are tender.
In a blender, combine the milk and flour and process until smooth. Slowly add the milk mixture to the soup, stirring quickly. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened, 3-4 minutes.
Turn the heat to low and stir in the cheese, one handful at a time, letting each addition melt before adding more. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
Serve immediately (the soup will thicken as it cools).
