Broccoli Cheese Soup... with REAL cheese!

Broccoli Cheese Soup in a bowl with spoon

So many broccoli and cheese soups have fake, cheese-like ingredients. Which is a shame, because broccoli and cheese soup made with real cheese is so delicious!

I love finding homemade versions of foods that I have tried while eating out and amping up the nutrition and flavor.  That’s what this recipe does!

You get some protein with bone broth, milk, cream and cheese. You get some healthy fat with the dairy, and you also get fiber with the broccoli and carrots! Not to mention the micronutrient vitamins and minerals. All in all, it's a nutritious meal and comes together quickly. 

You will really amp up the nutrition by using raw milk and cream, homemade bone broth and organic veggies.  Level up as many of those as you can. And feel free to double it if you want to feed a crowd or several teenagers (like me!) it works well in this recipe.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Hearty soup with nutritious, real food ingredients! 

Serves 4-5


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 

  • 1 onion, chopped

  •  2 garlic cloves, minced 

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 

  • 3 cups chicken broth 

  • 1 cup whole milk 

  • 1 cup heavy cream 

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper 

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric 

  • 4 cups broccoli florets (about 1 large head)

  •  1/2 cup shredded or chopped carrots 

  • 8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese (about 2 cups)

How to Make It 

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic to pan; sauté until fragrant and slightly translucent, but not brown, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the flour to form a paste; cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. 

  2. Whisk in the chicken broth, milk, heavy cream, white pepper, black pepper, ground nutmeg, and turmeric powder. Simmer on low for 15 minutes or until the mixture has thickened slightly. Optional: puree with immersion blender.

  3. Stir in the broccoli florets, carrots, and cheese; cover pan. Simmer for 5-6 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender; add salt to taste. Serve immediately.
