    • Preparation – 10 Mins
    • Cook: 25 mins
    • Total: 35 mins


    • 1 package of frozen chopped broccoli
    • 1 pound loaf of processed cheese food, cubed
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 4 cans of chicken broth
    • ½ cup butter
    • 2 cups milk
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • ⅔ cup cornstarch
    • 1 cup water


    • In a stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and heat, periodically stirring, until softened. Stir in broccoli. Add broth and cook broccoli for 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.
    • Reduce heat; toss in cheese cubes until melted. Stir in garlic powder and milk.
    • In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir into soup; frequently boil while stirring until thickened.

    How to Store Leftover Broccoli Cheese Soup:

    Storing: Leftover soup can be stored in an airtight jar in the fridge for 3 days. Reheat in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring regularly. Alternatively, reheat individual servings in a microwave-safe bowl on 50% power, stirring periodically. Although the cheese may separate slightly when reheated, it will still taste excellent.

    Freezing: This soup will not freeze well due to the milk and cheese in it. It’s ideal if you consume it within a few days of cooking it.

    Tips For Broccoli Cheese Soup:

    • Broccoli florets should be tiny in size. The cheese sticks more to larger bits.
    • Check that the temperature is not too high. If the temperature is too high, the cheese may cease and clump.
    • You can use pre-shredded cheese or a de-clumping agent. This broccoli cheddar soup recipe works well with pre-shredded cheese from a bag.
    • Only a small amount of cheese should be added at a time. If you put all of the cheese in at once, it will clump up even more.
