Very good - I was looking for a recipe that didn't use processed cheese. This recipe turns out creamy and has great flavor. I used chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon but other than that, I made it as written. I think I will add 1/2 tsp white pepper next time.

Very easy and delicious! I was looking for a recipe that called for real cheese. Was happy to find this one. I left out the flour completely and thickened it with cornstarch instead. Also, I added some pepper and garlic powder. My kids ate it up!

I made some modifications and certainly, feel with those it's a 5-star. First, I melted the butter in a large pan, then sauted onion, minced celery, grated carrot, garlic and shallot, as I think this was the main reason for the flavor, without it, I think it would be lacking. I then added some white pepper and salt. After the veggies softened, I added only about 2 or 2 1/2 T flour, which ended up being plenty to thicken this. I like the idea of dry mustard, but did not have any on hand or would have added it. I whisked in the milk, slowly till well combined. I then added in the cooked broccoli that I had cooked in vegetable stock. I then pureed this a bit with an immersion blender. I then added the softened (room temp) cream cheese (only used about 4 oz) and whisked that in. I added the cheddar cheese (more like 1 1/2 cups) and stirred to melt it. I had reserved a bit of the cooked broccoli and chopped it small, to add some texture to the soup, which was really nice. I served this in mini bread bowl, big hit with the kids, for fun-factor! The base idea of this recipe is really good, mostly because it does not call for process cheese food or to add a can of 'cream of something' soup, but is much more HOMEMADE.
