With the weather turning colder, it's time to pull out some soup recipes and warm everyone up! I'm thinking about hosting a soup party where everyone brings a crockpot of soup and we all sample each other's offerings. Now if I can find the time to put it together!
This soup is cheesy and delicious and is very simple to make. It came together in less than 20 minutes, making it a great choice for a busy weeknight.
Here's what you need:
1 head broccoli, cut into florets and steamed
(You could also use a bag of frozen broccoli florets)
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 can condensed cheese soup
1 teas onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I use sharp cheddar)
While the broccoli is steaming, combine the broth, milk, cheese soup and seasonings in a large saucepan. Heat until lightly simmering, stirring with a whisk to remove any lumps from the soup. You don't want to boil this because the milk might curdle. Just let it bubble a little around the edges.
Add the shredded cheese and whisk until it's completely melted. Give the broccoli florets a rough chop and add to the soup. Heat through and serve.
