“This is absolutely my favorite soup! It's rich and thick and comforting - and yet it's healthy!! I adapted this recipe from Kraft by using a different cheese and less water. This soup is delicious! Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook and stir carrots, onions and celery in hot oil in a large saucepot on medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Add chicken broth and water, stir. Bring to a boil. Stir in broccoli and rice. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 10 to 15 minutes stirring frequently. Use a hand-blender or pour batches into a blender to puree. (Be careful - it's hot!) Add the milk and cheese and stir until melted/combined.
  2. Please use fresh vegetables -- makes it a much tastier soup. Also keep in mind - the more broccoli you use - the greener your soup will look. I tend to use 2 cups broccoli to keep the color less green -- The original recipe added 2 cups water and used 1/2 cup parmesan cheese instead of processed cheese slices - but I like the taste of my recipe better. Serve in a breadbowl if you have it.
  3. Filling! Comforting! Enjoy!
