Making Your Own Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Get creative with this soup and add more veggies as you wish. In this recipe, we used celery, broccoli, and carrots. You can even throw in some potatoes, peas, or cauliflower. You can even add small bits of meat such as chicken, ham, or bacon.

You can also use mozzarella or freshly grated Parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. Instead of milk, you can even use heavy cream or substitute whole milk for skimmed or fresh milk.

However you prepare your broccoli cheddar soup or whatever vegetables you add, it will surely make you feel warm and cozy. This is even a great pick-me-up meal if you have the blues or a cold. Serve it to family and friends who feel under the weather and they will surely feel better.
