Sunday Soup--Brocoli Cheese

I love making soups and linking up with Deb
Souper Sundays at Kahakai Kitchen!
Souper Sundays is a weekly blog event that started because of her love of soup and a desire to work through the many soup and soup-like recipes in cookbooks and magazines, Deb set a goal to make a soup or "soupish" dish each week and post it each Sunday and invited others to do the same.

This is a favorite of everyone in my house.
Cheesy, creamy goodness!
Although the title of the recipe might indicate this to be a vegetable soup--it isn't.  It's a cheese soup.  The dominate flavor is cheese.  It's so yummy!!
I always think of making this soup as the weather starts to get cold outside. There are certain traditions to look forward to as the seasons change and this soup is a fall and winter favorite!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

1 (10oz) package frozen broccoli
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 1/2 tsp butter
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup water
1 (10oz) can cream of chicken soup
12oz Velveeta Cheese
1/2 cup cooked rice

Cook the broccoli according to package directions, omitting salt, drain well.
Cook onion, green pepper and butter in a large soup pot until tender.  Add milk, water, cream of chicken soup and cheese to soup pot. Cook until cheese melts.
Add the rice, heat and serve.

Add sandwiches to make a complete meal.

I made this to take to a church potluck as a gluten-free soup.  We needed one gluten free soup for a visiting Pastor. I was in charge of the meal/potluck and put the word out that we did need a gluten free soup.  We ended up with 4 gluten free soups, which were all great!  But this one was the best!

So I get the impression you like cheese :-) this is a hearty soup to take to potluck for sure. I also love hooking up with Souper Sundays. Do you know, I went through a rut for blogging recently thought about stopping. No goodbye post, just stop logging on. It was Souper Sunday that motivated me to post.
Soup is good for the soul.

I love Broccoli Cheese soup but have never made it myself. I'm going to Pin this and give it a try.

These definitely looks like a cheese soup with a bit of broccoli/vegetables--just the way I like it. ;-) Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays and for the SS love--I love it when you (and Tina!) link up and share with me!
