Broccoli & Cheese Soup

This is a perfect soup for a cold night.  My two-year old daughter loves this soup, which makes this an easy dinner option.  The recipe serves approximately 8 – 10 people so if you make the full batch, you will have plenty of leftovers for the rest of the week.


  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 2 1/2 lbs potatoes (approximately 4 average sized potatoes), peeled & chopped
  • 2 tbsp margarine (or butter)
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 cups chicken broth (make sure it’s gluten free)
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a large stock pot, saute onion and garlic in margarine until softened on medium heat
  2. Add broccoli, potatoes and chicken stock and cook for approximately 15 minutes until potatoes are tender
  3. In a food processor or blender, blend the soup until smooth
  4. Return to pot on medium heat and add shredded cheese.  Mix well until cheese has melted.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve warm
