Apparently I’ve been in a broccoli mood lately. Broccoli Chicken Divan, Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo, and today’s recipe for Broccoli Cheese Soup were all recent dishes served in the Herb household. Sister Spice refuses to eat broccoli, but Herb and I are quite fond of this green veggie.
The Monday before Thanksgiving, Sister Spice hosted a Super Soup Supper. She made a delicious and hearty Italian Chicken Noodle Soup, Mister Spice’s mother made a yummy potato soup, and I made this recipe for Broccoli Cheese Soup, which is supposedly a knockoff of T.G.I. Friday’s version.
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Adapted from T.G.I. Friday’s Recipe in Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2
- 4 cups chopped broccoli florets
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup half-and-half
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (plus additional to garnish)
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a large sauce pan, whisk together chicken broth, water, half-and-half, shredded cheese, flour, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Turn heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a boil.
Chop your broccoli and add it to the soup once it starts to boil, then reduce the heat to low.
Let the soup simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add some shredded cheddar to garnish, and enjoy with some toast, crackers, or whatever it is you enjoy with your soup!
We give this recipe 4/5 herbs. It’s simple but very flavorful!
