Two Cheese Broccoli Soup

My Two Cheese Broccoli Soup is an extra cheesy spin on a very popular classic recipe!

My oldest son and I love the broccoli cheese soup that you can get in a bread bowl at a very popular restaurant.  We literally fight each other for the last spoonful!  I just HAD to try to make my own.  It’s not an exact copy of our beloved favorite, but when my 9-year-old keeps asking me for more, then suggests we make our own bread bowls, I know I’ve got a winner on my hands!  I added a second cheese to make this a Two Cheese Broccoli Soup recipe!

This is probably the only way I’m going to get this kid of mine to eat broccoli these days.  Is it just my son, or do they get pickier and pickier when it comes to vegetables with each passing birthday? He used to eat Curried Broccoli Salad at age 2!  Curry and broccoli!  Now, he won’t touch the stuff without an argument.

The mom in me tells him that he has to eat it because it helps keep cancer away.  A little much? Maybe, but it works.  Sometimes.  Other times, I have to drown it in cream and cheese and call it soup.  That method gets him every time.  And me too.

Yep.   There are containers of this soup hiding in the back of my freezer where little hands can’t reach.  Once you try it, you’ll understand!

I used two different types of cheese in this soup to give it a little bit different flavor – gouda and extra sharp cheddar.  Both cheese flavors definitely come through!

This Two Cheese Broccoli Soup recipe can be made vegetarian by using a vegetable stock (this is how I always make it).  It can also be made gluten free by using a gluten free flour as the thickener.  I put this information in the recipe down below for easy reference!

  1. OHMYGOSH I just made broccoli cheese soup last night!! Too funny. I made a version with cashew cheese for me and a ‘normal’ version for my hubs. Still perfecting the normal version, but I feel like this one would be awesome because of the two different cheese varieties. He is going to love it!

    1. Haha! Funny how that happens! I hope your husband loves this version too! I’m still trying to make a perfect copy of regular broccoli cheddar soup, but haven’t quite gotten it yet!

    1. Thanks so much! The gouda definitely adds a smokiness to the soup – it’s different but really good!
