Cheesy Broccoli Soup is perfect for lunch or dinner! This delicious creamy soup is full of cheese and good for you ingredients.
I made this Cheesy Broccoli Soup last weekend for lunch. It was a perfect soup for lunch. My whole family loved it, although they were a bit skeptical at first. I convinced them all to just try a bite. After the first bite, they had a bowl and then came back for seconds. Ahhh....if they just had faith in me from the get-go!
Well, I must admit, I have made some food that hasn't always been a hit. But this cheesy broccoli soup is a winner!
This soup is made with some pretty simple ingredients. Broccoli (of course). Carrots to add a bit of sweetness. Onions and garlic just because you need the flavor. Milk or half-n-half and cheese! I used a mild cheddar cheese, but a sharp cheddar would be delicious. Okay, there are a few other ingredients too. You just have to read the recipe!
