I was thrilled when I served this healthified version of Broccoli Cheddar Soup and my 8 year old ate it! This is the kid that gags at the mere thought of broccoli. That makes it a definite winner. Plus it is easy, one pot, and ready in about 30 minutes. Score!
Broccoli Cheddar Soup
How easy is this soup? check out this short video to find out..
I am creating more videos like this these days, I’d love to have you subscribe to my YouTube channel.
The next time I make the soup I will save the florets for the top and only cook and puree the stems so I don’t have the tell-tale green flecks in the soup. 😉
If you want the soup more orange/yellow in color, add a peeled chopped carrot with the broccoli or some peeled sweet potatoes with the potatoes. Add a bit more liquid if it gets too thick.

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup onions chopped
- 2 cups stock chicken or vegetable
- 2 cups potatoes peeled and cut in 1" cubes
- 2 cups half and half or milk of any kind - coconut, almond, soy
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 cups broccoli chopped
- 2 cups cheddar cheese grated
- broccoli florets, cheese, croutons for serving
- In a large sauce pan, saute onion in olive oil until translucent, 1-2 minutes
- Add stock, half and half (milk), potatoes, broccoli, and bay leaf. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
- Puree with an immersion blender, or in a regular blender in batches.
- Mix in cheddar cheese slowly, stirring until incorporated.
Serve with croutons, extra cheese and broccoli florets if desired.
To add extra orange color to the soup you can add 1-2 carrots, peeled and chopped with the broccoli, or a cup of peeled and cubed sweet potato with the potatoes. You might need to add a little extra liquid if it is too thick.
