This potato, cheese, and broccoli soup is about as comforting as it gets. We swapped butter, cream cheese, and cream of mushroom soup for lighter ingredients, but this recipe maintains a rich, indulgent flavor. For an easy weeknight dinner, look no further than this broccoli potato soup.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together flour and 1/3 cup chicken broth until smooth.

  • Combine remaining chicken broth and next 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Cook, stirring often, 5 minutes.

  • Stir in milk and 8 ounces shredded cheese. Cook mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until cheese melts. Top each serving of soup with 1 teaspoon cheese, 1 teaspoon bacon pieces, and 1 teaspoon chopped green onions.

  • Note: We recommend freshly shredded cheese (versus the preshredded variety) for additional creaminess and even melting.
