Creamy Broccoli Potato Soup

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.


4 servings

In Valparaiso, Indiana, Barbara Baker relies on a few handy ingredients to make canned soup taste just like homemade. The creamy mixture that results is hearty with chunks of broccoli and potato.


  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh basil or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a large saucepan, saute broccoli and onion in butter until tender. Stir in soup, milk, water, basil and pepper; heat through. Add cheese; stir until melted.

    I used my IP for this recipe and it worked beautifully. I did not have any cream of potato soup (never buy it); however, I had some leftover scalloped potatoes and used that instead. I did use my immersible blender to puree everything before adding the milk. (only used 1/2 cup). Soup was thick and creamy just like we like it. Love the added taste of basil in this recipe.

    I make this really often now with frozen broccoli, substituting evaporated skim milk for all the liquid and adding canned corn. I also sprinkle in some crushed dried red pepper for a little extra zip!

    I used a bag of frozen broccoli and just thawed it in the microwave for a few minutes while sauteing the onions. This soup tasted great!

    Very good for a quick meal to serve along with grilled sandwiches.

    So easy and delicious! I do substitute chicken broth for the water.

    This was a great lunch, served with warm rolls. I will be making this again--it was just delicious.
