Cream of Broccoli Soup

This soup is a great meal starter, but I also serve it as the main course when I'm in need of a quick nourishing lunch or dinner. Just add a green salad and a biscuit or roll.

    Delicious and hearty! A short-cut recipe, but if you're looking for a quick 'semi' homemade soup - this is it!

    This was an ok soup. Next time, I will need to make just a few adjustments for it to be a great soup. My family agreed it had an "artificial" flavor that comes from using canned soup. Even though I used my own chicken stock, the canned soup over powered the delicate balance. I ended up adding grated cheddar cheese to keep everyone happy.

    Delicious, easy and hearty. Everything a soup should be. I serve it with a bit of grated cheddar cheese on top. This is definitely a keeper of a recipe.

    I like to use a can of condensed cheddar soup instead of 1 of the cans of cream of chicken. I then add some sharp cheddar cheese to create broccoli cheddar soup. This is a very easy recipe!
