Broccoli-Cheddar Soup

  • Prep Time 0:15
  • Cook Time 0:30
  • Estimated Cost $10.50

I invented this recipe while babysitting for some awesome kids who were, uncharacteristically, refusing to eat vegetables. A little sprinkle of cheddar cheese and a whir of the immersion blender was pretty much all their broccoli needed to turn into a delectable soup. They devoured it and second helpings were sweetly demanded.


  • 3 cups broccoli florets (approx. 2 heads, trimmed) $3
  • 1 small onion, diced $0.50
  • 1 tbsp olive oil Pantry
  • 1 15-oz. can chicken or vegetable stock $1
  • 3 small red potatoes, peeled and diced $1.50
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese plus more for garnish $3 for 10 oz.
  • 2/3 cup milk $1.50 for 1 pint
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2-4


  1. Heat the olive oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until soft, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes. Add broccoli and potatoes and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Add broth and water to cover and cook, with the lid on for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft enough to cut with a spoon.
  2. Add milk and puree using a blender, food processor, or immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Gently stir in cheddar cheese until melted and fully distributed. Ladle into bowls and garnish with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
