This is my favorite recipe for cheddar and broccoli soup. Love this when its cold outside, and its easy to make.

1 cp. half and half (low fat one)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 cps. broccoli florets (frozen and cooked according to pkg. directions)
1 small box velveeta
3 cps. sharp cheddar


1. In large pot or dutch oven, heat the butter, add the flour and reduce the heat.

Cook 2 minutes.

2.Add the broth, milk, half and half,salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Stir in the velveeta and cheddar and simmer on low until cheese is melted, and

add the broccoli. Continue to simmer for an additional 5 minutes.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I tried this recipe tonight for dinner. It was excellent soup. However, I thought it needed more broccoli. I used 3 cups rather than the 2. I would make this soup again.
