Cheesy Broccoli Soup

WebMD Recipe

Total Time: 25 Minutes

Cheesy Broccoli Soup


  • 3 1/2 pounds broccoli, washed and drained (about 4 bunches)
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 14 ounce cans fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 cups 1% milk
  • 3 cups shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese


Step 1
 Cut broccoli into small pieces, discarding any overly thick bottom stems.
Step 2
Boil broccoli in a medium saucepan until just tender to retain nutrients. Immediately rinse with cold water, drain, and refrigerate.
Step 3
 In a large saucepan, saute green onions for about two minutes in butter or until tender.
Step 4
Stir in chicken broth and slowly add flour, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Bring to a slow boil on medium high heat, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 5
Add broccoli pieces to the broth and puree mixture in an electric blender or food processor until smooth.
Step 6
Return soup to saucepan over low heat. Blend in milk and Swiss cheese and simmer gently until cheese melts but not until milk boils.
Step 7
Add nutmeg, grated pepper, or grated cheddar cheese to taste.
