Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup is the ultimate comfort dinner made with chunks of potatoes, carrots, onion and fresh broccoli in a thick, cheesy broth.

One of my husbands most frequent dinner requests is potato soup, especially during the winter months. This is all fine by me since it is so easy to make and super affordable. I have found many variations of potato soup to switch it up a bit and adding broccoli is a favorite. Plus, any dish I can get the kids to eat broccoli without complaints is a major mom win in my book. This is soup is one of those dishes.

Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup

Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup is thick and creamy with chunks of potato and broccoli in every bite. Garlic, carrot and onion add nice flavor to the broth and of course, there’s the cheese. Sharp cheddar adds a level of yum and also helps thicken the broth. Just look at the photos! Can’t you just imagine every delicious bite of comfort and warmth. I sure can but maybe I am bias considering I still have a belly full of soup.

If you have been following me the past few months, you may have noticed me sharing a lot of recipes made with Aldi ingredients. Well, here is another and I will be rounding up some recipes for my Aldi shoppers in a post here soon. All the ingredients in this soup are found in any grocery store but it makes my Aldi grocery list. You may like these Chicken and Gravy Biscuit Sandwiches made with Aldi “red bag chicken”.

    Can I make this in a slow cooker? Would you pre-cook anything like the onions and garlic or just dump it all? Thanks!

      Yes, obviously you would want to wait until the potatoes got tender and then add broccoli so times would be different. I would probably wait to add the thickener too and instead of flour using a cornstarch slurry later in cook time.

    This was excellent! Very easy to make. I didn’t add carrots & I did use cream instead of milk. It made 3 lg dinner size bowls of soup. I had 1 & my husband had 2! Enough for the 2 if us. So if you really need 6 servings I would double recipe.

    My apologies, if this is a weird question, but do you know if this soup could be frozen and re-heated after being cooked? I’m not sure about the protocol of that. Either way, the recipe looks great, and I’m excited to try it, thanks!!

      Yes, just let the soup cool before placing into fridge or into freezer bags.
