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.
Broccoli, Cannellini Bean & Cheddar Soup
From EatingWell: September/October 2007
White beans pureed into this broccoli soup make it extra creamy so you don't need heaps of cheese to do the job. Serve with a crunchy whole-grain roll and a glass of winter ale.
55 Reviews for Broccoli, Cannellini Bean & Cheddar Soup
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.
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.
I think this recipe is equally great without the cheese.
