Broccoli Cheese Soup is rated out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by epicuriousfaye from Very Tasty An easy recipe to follow and execute. I made some slight modifications including increasing the amount of cheese to approximately 1 cup, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Once it was fully blended and heated I carefully removed the lid plug to taste and adjust seasoning. After blending for about another 30-40 secs I removed the lid plug and added about another 1/2 cups of small steamed broccoli pieces. I blended on Variable 1 for about another 10-15 secs. I did this last step because I like some small broccoli pieces in my soup. I served it with some shredded cheese and Grissol Bagguetes Bites. Very tasty indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gma Bell from AWESOME SOUP! This is the first soup I tried and it was absolutely delicious. I used all the ingredients according to the recipe, using only uncooked cauliflower in the soup, and increased the onion to a whole medium yellow onion-chopped. Because we like our food a little more spicy than most recipes suggest, I added extra spices - 2 cloves of garlic plus about 2 teaspoons of garlic powder, chipotle salt blend, smoked sea salt and pepper to taste, and a small amount of soy sauce. I poured the soup over steamed broccoli; however, next time I will pulse the broccoli into the soup. This soup was so easy and filling. It was a complete meal for 2 on a Monday night!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheryl C from My First Vitamix Soup! I used this as a base recipe for my first attempt at making soup in my new Vitamix. Here's my version: 12 oz can of fat free evaporated milk 1 tsp better than bouillon reduced sodium chicken flavoring dissolved in a cup of boiling water 2-3 Tbl chopped sweet onion 3 small sweet peppers 1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese 2/12 to 3 cups steamed cauliflower Generous grind of black pepper Pinch of red pepper flakes I forgot to keep some of the cauliflower aside to add after blending, and would consider adding in some small diced potatoes as well, but the flavor and consistency were outstanding! Very pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Birdydaddy from Broccoli Not My Favorite I am not crazy about broccoli. We buy the big broccoli floret bag at Costco, my wife loves broccoli. I was looking for ways to get rid of the broccoli when I came upon this recipe. The soup is delicious. I gave 4 stars because I made a couple changes to match our taste. First I steamed a little over 2 cups of broccoli for 10 minutes. Add 1 1/4 cup of milk to the Vitamix, 1/4 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp of garlic powder, 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper, the diced sliced onion, 3/4 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, then the broccoli. Blend 6 minutes in the Vitamix, and enjoy. We have some Hawaiian Sweet Rolls with the soup, for an easy delicious hot lunch on these cold winter afternoons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LML123 from Very good but needs some adjustments I've had my Vitamix for a while and finally decided to try making soup. I trim my fresh broccoli and toss the big stems in a bag in the freezer. When the bag is full, I make soup! So today for lunch....Soup! I steamed my frozen broccoli stems and then used the cooking water for 1/2 of the milk. I also added 2 cloves of garlic and one chopped shallot in place of the onion. Overall, it was very good. A very lucious, creamy texture, surprisingly hot enough with good flavor. The garlic cloves were a bit much so next time I'll use garlic powder and toss in some mild, sweet onion instead of the shallot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kjdo from AMAZING I fixed this almost like the recipe, but I don't have anything diet in the kitchen. So it was 1 cup of raw whole milk, 1/2 cup of shredded co-jack cheese. I steamed 2 cups of Broccoli/Cauliflower mix. I sautéed one onion slice (diced), 6 grape tomatoes slices and a little garlic. I used 1 1/2 cups of the veggies and the sautéed onion mixture in the blender to start with and then the last 1/2 cup of veggies were added and blended to make the soup chunky. Serving it with a little extra grated cheese on top. YUMMY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AppleJack from Better than the country club!! Try my version! I worked at a very nice country club where we spent hours making fresh soups, including a broccoli cheese. My version is so much better and is minutes instead of hours!! Three slight alterations to the Vita-mix recipe. I use 1/2 cup of heavy cream and half a cup of whole milk. I substitute a teaspoon of the brand ‘Better than bouillon’ instead of using a dry bouillon cube, I use 2 cups of broccoli florets for blending, and one cup for garnishing. Makes a super creamy gourmet soup. I serve this with some slices from a fresh crispy loaf of sourdough bread and individual pats of foil wrapped butter. White pepper is great lightly sprinkled on top too! Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by patriciat12 from A great base to build on! I used this recipe, then added another cup of steamed broccoli and about 6 cherry tomatoes, and rough chopped them (setting of 2, pulse 3-4 times) to make the soup chunky. I held back a little bit of the cheese from the recipe to sprinkle on as a garnish, added some broken up tortilla chips and a teaspoon of salsa to each bowl. Dee-licious!
