Chef's Notes

For just a broccoli soup base, the cheddar may be omitted and replaced with an extra cup of cooked broccoli florets. Try a dollop of our Broccoli and Lemon Pate to utilize your stems if you are cooking a raw head of broccoli. Pre-shredded cheese may create a thicker soup as it is coated with cornstarch to prevent sticking.
