now that fall is here, it is soup time and i like a good brroccoli cheddar soup. this is good but i feel that it could be improved by using half and half and sharp cheddar cheese to improve the flavor. also a couple of drops of hot sauce could spice it up a bit.
How do i make it less thick. Also my flour clumped together before I even put the milk and broth in. did i use to much flour or not enough butter?
I always seem to have the ingredients to make this soup. We like a little more cheese than the recipe calls for. It's very easy to put together. Double or triple the recipe to serve more. It's a keeper.
I'll keep this recipe on hand for a quick warm meal. I omitted the salt and increased the cheese. Served with cornbread - delicious!
I liked the soup, but I added about 1/2 to 1tsp of worcestershire sauce, 1/2 clove of garlic finely minced, and a little cayenne powder. I also sauteed the broccoli with the onions and butter, because I like my broccoli a little more soft.
