White Broccoli & Cauliflower Cheese Soup



White Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Soup.  The soup (cheese) is white, not the broccoli.  I stressed over the name of this soup because it sounds like I'm using white broccoli, which I don't even think exists.  Does it?  (please hold a moment, while I google).  Shoot.  There IS such a thing as white broccoli.  Well, rest assured, this here recipe calls for the good old fashioned green broccoli.

I have such a soft spot for broccoli and cheese.  Growing up my mother didn't cook very often, but when she did we almost always had a big dish of microwaved broccoli florets smothered in melted Kraft American cheese singles.  I make it all the time now for my own kids and I think they love it as much as I do. So, in homage to that delicious cheese smothered broccoli, I developed this simple, but slightly more sophisticated, White Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Soup recipe.

White Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Soup

White Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Soup Ingredients:

  • 4 cups (32 ounces) chicken stock or broth
  • 12 ounces broccoli/cauliflower mix (I used fresh)
  • 1/2 cup julienne (matchstick) carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package Kraft White American Singles (32 ounces/24 slices), small cubed

White Broccoli and Cauliflower Cheese Soup Directions:

  1. Bring chicken stock to a light boil and add broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, seasoned salt, and nutmeg.  Turn heat down to medium low and cook, covered, until broccoli is soft.
  2. Add one quarter of the cubed cheese and stir until melted, repeat until all cheese is incorporated. Do NOT boil.
  3. If you prefer your soup less chunky, use an immersion blender until you reach your desired consistency (I pulsed mine about four times).
  4. Serve and enjoy!
