One of the best soups I've ever made. And so simple. I did add chopped onion to the broccoli. What a great way to get picky eaters to eat veggies! Delicious! Bacon bits would put it over the top.


We love this at our house-my kids (4 and 7) ask for this almost every week! My only change is adding garlic and onion, which I do almost everything, but otherwise it's fantastic.


I like the convenience of this soup.The first time I made it (with no changes except also adding chopped broccoli stalks as someone has done here) it tasted fine but not great.

The second time I replaced half the cheddar with feta cheese and it added a whole new taste and was loved by my veggie hater husband! Maybe its just an individual preference, but I am keen to try further variations to this basic recipe.

Thanks eatingwell!


I love, love, love this recipe and have made it many times. It needs no improvement!


I thought this was pretty tasty. My son who adores Cheddar Broccoli soup loved it and said it was the best he has ever had. I omitted the cheese in the soup (due to my dietary restrictions) but the kids sprinkled it on top and stirred it in.
