Make this easy restaurant quality Broccoli Cheese Soup in your own kitchen! Includes my #1 soup making tip that takes soup to the next level!



  • 1/2 Cup Butter
  • 1/2 Cup chopped (Onion)
  • 1 lb . Broccoli Florets (chopped)
  • 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 5 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 8 oz Velveeta Cheese
  • 2 Cups Half and Half (slightly warmed)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp White Pepper


  1. Melt the butter in a soup pot. Once it’s sizzling add the onion and broccoli. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the onions start to look translucent and the broccoli is just slightly cooked.
  2. Add the flour. Stir until no white steaks remain.
  3. Add the chicken broth a little at a time, stirring well after each addition. Once all the chicken broth is added, cook at a low boil until the broccoli is tender.
  4. Pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour back into the soup pot.
  5. Add the velveeta to the soup and whisk until melted over low heat.
  6. Add the slightly warmed half and half, salt, and white pepper. Heat soup until it is hot, but not boiling. (If you bring the soup back to a boil after the half and half has been added, it will break and be grainy.) Serve and enjoy!
