Warm Your Soul with Broccoli Cheddar Vegetable Soup

This hearty broccoli cheddar soup is loaded with delicious flavors. There is no need to go out to Panera for an expensive lunch when you can make this copycat broccoli cheddar soup at home. It is full of great broccoli cheese flavors!  It’s easy to make in less than an our. My husband couldn’t stop eating it. My version is a bit lighter without heavy cream, but the taste is still just as comforting and mouthwatering as ever.

I love to use plenty of broccoli because it’s one of my favorite vegetables, you can always use less or smaller pieces to your taste. Even my kids who don’t really like broccoli can eat this soup.
