  • Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe

    This were given to me, I haven't tried it yet, thought I'd post them.

    Broccoli Cheese Soup

    2 cups sliced carrots
    1 cup sliced celery
    2 cups broccoli florets
    1 1/2 cups chopped onion
    1/2 cup butter
    3/4 cup flour
    1 can condensed chicken broth, undiluted
    1 qt milk
    1/2 pound cubed Velveeta

    In large saucpage, bring 2 qts water to a boil. Add carrots, celery and broccoli; cover and boil for 5 minutes.

    In another large saucepan, saute onion in butter. Add flour and stir to make smooth paste. Gradually add chicken broth and milk. Cook until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.

    Add the carrots, celery and broccoli; head through. Add cheese; heat until melted and veggies tender.

  • Mmm.. I've been looking for a good Broccoli cheese soup recipe do you think i could use regular cheddar instead of Velveeta?


    • Hmm - I'm not sure, as I think cheddar would be rather greasy and doesn't melt well. Unless anybody has any hints for that.
