Broccoli, Cheese & Potato Soup

I made this recipe a couple of months ago, having gotten it from the newsletter for my CSA, Abundant Harvest Organics. We thought it was a great recipe and I am putting it on my blog to keep it bookmarked for future eating (and so I can now throw away the recipe card)!

Broccoli, Cheese & Potato Soup


  • 2-1/2 cups Broccoli, chopped & steamed until crisp tender
  • 1/3 cup Onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 4 cups Potatoes, diced & peeled
  • 3 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1/4 tsp. Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt (or to taste)
  • Dash Paprika (or to taste)


  1. In large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender.
  2. Add flour, pepper, salt, and paprika and stir until smooth.
  3. Add broth, milk, and potatoes, stirring constantly until it boils and thickens.
  4. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  5. Stir in cheese and cooked broccoli and cook over low until cheese is melted and soup heated through.
  6. Some crispy croutons may be added as a garnish as well as some chopped parsley or cilantro for a kick.
