I just finished eating this wonderful yummy soup, and it was so easy to make. I did make a few adjustments: I used 4 cups cubed russet potatoes, 1 1lb. bag frozen broccoli flowets, 1 c. chopped onion as I thought 2 cups would be over powering, in place of the bouillion cubes and 5 cups of water I used 2 14oz. cans chicken broth and 1 cup water also added 3 crushed garlic cloves, and only used 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese. I cooked the broccoli in with the potatoes as other reviewers suggested and then pureed 1/2 the soup and it turned out nice and creamy. This will be a regular in our house during the winter months. Thanks Ruth for sharing this 5 ***** recipe.

Awesome! Of note, you can add raw broccoli to the soup a few minutes prior to pureeing in a blender. This way, you don't have to cook the broccoli separately. I also added white pepper, red pepper flakes, savory, and garlic powder. Next time, I'll definitely saute garlic with the onion, as I think that would make this awesome soup even better!

This was excellent! I sauteed the onion, added a clove of garlic, fresh ground pepper and a handful of baby carrots, then just cooked them all with the potatoes and broccoli in the broth. I pureed the entire thing (use a blender--a food processor splatters!) and tasted it. It was so delicious that I decided the cheese was optional. It also did not require any additional salt. I'm serving it tonight with homemade garlic croutons and just a sprinkle of sharp cheddar. Thank you for this wonderful, adaptable recipe. It's now in my recipe box and on my list of ideas for food to bring to sick friends. I'll bet you could easily turn this into a delicious vegan meal by using vegetable broth and omitting the cheese.
