    I work at Yummly, and this delicious soup is now in my family's regular rotation. For my kid who's suspicious of broccoli (but loves cheese), I just put her portion in the blender and blend it smooth, veggies and all. Works like a charm.

    Took off one star because the original amount of vegetables seemed excessive. I eyeballed the amounts, and it turned out delicious.

    Very tasty and easy to make! I think it needs a bit more flavor so I added some extra spice, but other than that it was great!

    Loved it, very easy to make! Though to make it a little healthier I subbed whole milk for oat milk and used a half cup less of cheese. Still super creamy, delicious, and a great way to sneak in some veggies.

    This was good, but not great - it was actually better leftover so might make in advance next time to let flavors come out. Needed salt to serve.

    I’m so impressed with how easy and delicious this recipe is! My new fave 🤗 Will make this again and again! Used 2% milk and it still turned out amazing and used frozen broccoli. I didn’t cook the broccoli for 10mins because it was already cooked so added near the end!

    Super yummy! Added some heavy cream instead of some of the milk since all we had was 2%. Had it with sandwiches. Definitely would make again.
    Amazing! Are used 2% milk instead of whole milk and it still came out very creamy. I also used frozen broccoli instead of fresh
