Andy's Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe -- so easy and creamy.

My granddaughter loves ordering broccoli cheese soup whenever she goes to her favorite restaurant.

So, I did some research and experimentation, and this creamy, rich broccoli cheese soup is the winner! And, having cream, nutmeg, and Emmentaler cheese.... well ... it's got to be German! :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Don't have an immersion blender? Carefully pour hot soup into blender and puree. Then, return to the pot and reheat gently if needed.
  • Want to keep the calories down. Omit the cream and add an extra cup of milk or chicken stock.
  • Use any kind of melting cheese.

Did  you know ...

Broccoli is high in vitamin C as well as dietary fiber. It is also rich in lutein. For the best nutrient punch, it is best eaten raw or slightly steamed.

If your broccoli has been sitting in the fridge for a while and doesn't look like it would be nice for a salad, then making this soup is one of those easy vegetable recipes that would be a great way of using a less-than-fresh veggie.


Oma says:

I was looking for an easy broccoli recipe, something a bit different, but still German. This soup was the result. With such easy lunch ideas as this one, you'll treat your family like royalty.
