    I added a whole bag of frozen broccoli to this and the kids loved it! Top it with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar. Easy way to get kids to eat veggies!

    Excellent broccoli cheddar soup

    Posted by Shelley on Nov 14th 2023

    I added fresh broccoli, some carrots, onion, garlic and celery to this soup. It was the best. I didn't have half and half or cream but used one cup of evaporated milk instead. i also added a little grated parmesean cheese to the recommended amount of shredded cheddar cheese. agreat meal by itself or with a sandwich. My son added sliced beer brats to his soup.

    In love with your soup mixes!

    We recently discovered your soup mixes and have tried three (Arizona Sunset Enchilada Soup, Idaho Outpost Potato Leek Soup & tonight, the Virginia Blue Ridge Broccoli Cheddar Soup). Whole family loved them all. Especially great for us is that the ones we have tried are vegetarian, so we can easily substitute vegetable broth/bouillon for chicken broth, and vegetarian protein options (by Boca, Gardein or Quorn) that mimic the meat the package calls for, and in half an hour we have delicious vegetarian soup! Next we will try the Jambalaya (made with What, ham substitute, and vegetarian "shrimp." Can't wait to try all the varieties! -Kerri Bradley

    Broccoli Cheddar

    Posted by DD on Jan 30th 2022

    Wow! This came out so good, I added a package of frozen broccoli florets and some frozen peas and corn and dumped everything in crock pot, used sodium free broth and evaporated milk in place of 1/2 and 1/2 and even my broccoli hating hubby ate it up. I made a loaf of bread to go along with it and it made for a wonderful, easy meal on chilly winter night. Will definitely be reordering!
