Cheesy Vegetable Soup Recipe

My husband's a grain farmer who is definitely a "meat and potatoes" man. He likes soup on a chilly day, though. Served with warm bread, this makes for a quick but hearty noontime meal. Along with our children, 10 and 5, we live 5 miles from town. I wouldn't trade country life for a million bucks!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 45 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped broccoli
  • 3/4 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese


  • 1. In a heavy 4-qt. saucepan, melt butter; add flour. Gradually add the broth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add next seven ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

"Have been making this recipe for years. However I don't put in the cheese. It's a family favorite."

"This sounds so good. Thank you.

I agree. I would love to live in the country, but can't night drive."
