Broccoli Cheddar Soup Recipe


  • 1 large head of broccoli, chopped into florets
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 cups of chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Saut茅 Onion and Garlic: In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic. Saut茅 until the onion becomes translucent, which should take about 5 minutes.
  2. Add Broccoli and Broth: Add the chopped broccoli florets and the chicken or vegetable broth to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Simmer: Reduce the heat to a simmer and let the soup cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the broccoli becomes tender.
  4. Puree the Soup: Use an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender to puree it until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids; allow them to cool slightly and blend in batches if using a regular blender.
  5. Incorporate Cream and Cheese: Return the pureed soup to the pot. Stir in the heavy cream and shredded cheddar cheese until the cheese is fully melted into the soup.
  6. Season: Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference.
  7. Serve: Serve the broccoli cheddar soup hot, and if desired, garnish each bowl with additional shredded cheddar cheese.
