Easy Cheesy Broccoli Cheese Soup Recipe

This delicious broccoli cheese soup recipe is so easy to make. It is also a healthy recipe because of the vitamins and nutrients in the vegetables. The cream is optional but it does make the soup nice and smooth. The wine is also optional and you can swap it for extra vegetable broth if you do not want to add it. If you want the soup to be really thick, you can increase the amount of corn flour.

The combination of milk, butter, and cream gives this soup a smooth texture and a luxurious taste and the garlic, Chardonnay, and cheddar cheese complement the flavor of the broccoli. You can use a different type of cheese if you like, but the sharpness of the cheddar is especially nice with the broccoli flavor.

This is one of the easiest vegetable soup recipes you can make and, if you have some broccoli to use up, this is a great recipe for it. Newcomers to the world of easy soup recipes will find this dish a breeze to make because you just have to cook everything in one pot; it could not be simpler. Remember to dissolve your corn flour in cold water because if you use hot water it will go lumpy and not dissolve.
