And easy broccoli and cheese soup that is done in 30 minutes!

Broccoli Cheese Soup | Taste and Tell

*Photo Updated October 2012*

I’m probably going to be scorned for this recipe, but I just have to share because this is my favorite broccoli cheese soup recipe. So why would I get scorned? Well, it’s made with processed cheese (such as Velveeta) and I know that the food blogging world often looks down on products like this.

There is a bakery and cafe here, and if you have ever tried their broccoli cheese soup, this tastes just like it. It’s delicious!! And I’m not the only one to think so – it has 4 1/2 stars and 606 reviews on Allrecipes! Not only is it tasty, but it’s extremely easy and will feed a crowd. We’ve had this at family gatherings a few times because one batch feeds so many. So if you aren’t an ingredient purist, you should give it a try!!

    Don’t fret- there is room in the world for velveeta! Soups sounds so good today!

  2. PheMom says:

    I will not scorn your Velveeta. I make chicken enchilada soup with it too and love it. Sometimes you’ve just gotta use what works… now spray can cheese? Let people take issue with that. I can’t wait to try this.

    Yes, Kneaders Bakery and I have a very close relationship, I go there very very often. I’m a sucker for their bread and soup but especially their salads. I was afraid to post a potato soup recipe I made a while ago because it has velveeta in it as well! Maybe I will now! I will definitely try this recipe!

    I have never had a broccoli cheese soup. Its about time to change that. My mother wouldnt let me buy Velvetta. One day I have to change that.:-)

  5. Anj says:

    Some things like broccoli cheese soup (or broccoli casserole) just *need* Velveeta. No purist here, looks like a great recipe.

  6. Happy cook says:

    I don’t scorn at all
    The soup looks super delicious

  7. Christine says:

    Broccoli and Cheese soup is one of my favorite soups! So no scorning on my end!

  8. Kevin says:

    Broccoli and cheese soup is one of my favorites soups. I nave not tried it with velveeta but I will have to.

  9. Mary says:

    I won’t scorn you for Velveeta, my one grandma cooked with it all the time. And I am just a freak when it comes to good old Jello. Sometimes these ingredients, processed though they are, make the best recipes.

    my dad makes a killer macaroni and cheese with Velveeta, so I always allow myself to indulge once a year or so!

    it’s not like you’re eating the stuff straight from the box daily, right? 😉

  11. ourohana says:

    I love Kneaders! I’ve yet to have their soup, but their sandwiches and just about everything else I’ve tried is excellent.

  12. Anonymous says:

    I love the restaurant style, but this looks super delicious. I am anxious to try this receipe, and I will not scorn either. You just have to use what works. I agree.

    hehe! I make my Cheddar Broccoli soup with Ragu's double cheddar sauce. I've tried recipes with non-processed cheese, it's just not the same 🙁
