Best Broccoli & Cheese Soup
This is one of my absolute favorite soups. Quick and easy to make, cheesy & delicious!
2 (14.5oz) packages of Bird’s Eye Chopped Broccoli
1 stick of butter
2 cartons (32oz) Chicken Broth – I prefer Pacific because it’s gluten free and organic
1 lb of Kraft loaf cheese (cut into one inch cubes)
1 small/medium onion chopped or 1/4 cup dry onion flakes
2 cups of milk
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1 cup water
2/3 cups cornstarch
In a stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter until soft. Mix in broccoli, and cover with chicken broth. Simmer until broccoli is tender which should be 15 to 20 minutes. Next, add garlic powder, salt, pepper. Reduce the heat and add the cubed Kraft Cheese. Stir until melted. Add milk. In a bowl add water & cornstarch and whisk together (or in a small jar add together, secure lid and shake well). Add blended cornstarch and water to soup. Continue to stir soup well until thick and hot.
Serve with your favorite bread or crackers (I love this with some Food Should Taste Good MultiGrain Chips)
