RECIPE BOOK: Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Yup, another soup!!  If I ever do get around to filling up a cook book, I might as well just make it a soup cook book.   Haha.  And of course, I chose a nice humid and hot day to make this.  ...not quite the brightest crayon in the box!

Anyways...  Here is my recipe for Broccoli Cheddar Soup!


1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 large red potato, chopped
2 large heads of broccoli, chopped
6 cups Vegetable Broth
2 bay leaves
3.5 cups shredded cheese


Heat a large pot on medium and cook onion and potato until soft, about 7 minutes.  Add nutmeg to taste and broccoli and cook another 5 minutes.  Add vegetable broth and bay leaves and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer and cook until broccoli begins to soften; about 15 minutes.  Add pepper to taste.

Once cooked, add cheese (I did 2 cups sharp cheddar for flavor and 1.5 cups swiss for stretchy-ness) and continue mixing until the cheese has melted and blended into the broth.  Let sit to cool and serve while warm.  Once cooled, the cheese will begin to congeal. 

  1. Once cooled and stored in the fridge, be aware that the cheese will congeal together at the top.  You will need to break up and remix. 

I will add photos once I think straight enough 
to take them while making the dish.


1.  What's your favorite type of soup?

2.  Do you have any suggestions for future recipes?!
