This was an outstanding recipe! I tweaked it a little bit, and I would highly suggest adding these few items for extra flair: --1 slice of pepper jack cheese (for kick) --1 stalk of celery --A couple toes of garlic --1 gold potato, chopped --Parm cheese (just a little bit) --2 slices of crispy bacon chopped fine. I served mine in a bread bowl with sharp cheddar cheese sprinkled on top, and it was absolutely fabulous! (See pic). This will definitely be one of my new staple recipes! Thanks!

This is a delicious, restaurant-quality soup that reminds me of the broccoli-cheddar from my favorite gourmet soup-and-panini shoppe. It is an absolute MUST to use fresh garlic (I used four cloves, minced) and fresh broccoli to get the full flavor this hearty soup deserves. Sharp or extra sharp cheddar is also necessary, don't use regular or mild, you'll get a bland soup more like a cream of broccoli. I would absolutely make this again, it is a wonderful complement to a sandwich or burger. The day I first made it, I had a bowl for lunch and then loved it so much I had it again for dinner! Fairly quick and simple and it freezes well, too.

Lovely. Choose a flavorful cheese and grate it yourself. Prepackaged shredded cheeses have caking agents that prevent them from melting well. I usually choose an extra sharp and of course FRESH broccoli and FRESH garlic.
