Is it cold outside where you are?  Here in Northern, VA its been pretty cold (at least, for these parts), for a couple weeks now.  Winter doesn’t officially start until next week, however, I’m thinking its pretty much here.  Anytime there is a nip in the air, I’m in the mood for soup, stew, chili – basically, a hot meal you eat out of a bowl.  Also, something that goes with a nice, crusty, cheesy piece of bread to sop up all the broth is even better!

My mom makes an AMAZING pot of broccoli cheese soup.  This recipe is an adaptation of hers – Its so good that the church had asked her to make it for their annual soup supper for many years.  She would make a HUGE, roaster sized batch of this soup, and it would usually be gone by the end of the night.  People love it because its, creamy, hearty, and warms the soul after a long day.  It truly doesn’t get much better than that!

  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (32 oz.) carton of chicken broth or stock
  • 2 c. broccoli, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 3 c. milk
  • 2 c. cooked chicken (rotisserie chicken works well)
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 10 oz. processed cheese, cubed (like velveta)


  1. Heat large stockpot or dutch oven on medium high heat. Add olive oil to heat. Add the onion and garlic. Sautee for a couple minutes until onions are translucent. Add the broth and broccoli. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large measuring cup, add the flour to the milk and whisk together until well blended. Add milk mixture and chicken to the broccoli mixture. Cook for 5 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper. Remove from heat, and add the cheese. Stir occasionally until the cheese melts.
  3. Place 1/3 of the soup into a blender, and process until smooth. Pour back into the soup to give it a creamier texture.

On these cold, winter nights I hope you’re able to settle in, and relax with a nice bowl of this delicious soup.  It really does warm the heart and soul.

    HI. I`m not familiar with english cooking measurement. Correct me if I`m wrong: 3c. milk means 3 cups of milk?
