Storing Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Once broccoli soup is cooked, let cool and cover in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If you wish, freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Reheating the soup

Pour soup into a pot or sauce pan then heat through, while stirring occasionally, careful not to bring to a rapid oil.

What’s the best cheese to use?

Cheese is obviously quite important for this soup so I’d suggest going for good quality cheeses. Ideally shred your own cheese as it will melt better than pre shredded. Pre shredded contains anti caking agent. A slightly aged cheddar works really well!

If cheddar isn’t your thing, or you just want to switch up the flavor, you can go for smoked gouda, Pepperjack, or even mozzarella cheese

  • Be sure to taste the soup as you go and adjust accordingly.
  • Feel free to throw in any other soup friendly veggies if you wish. You can even go half broccoli half cauliflower for a mix of textures.
  • If the soup thickens too much while cooking, add more chicken stock (or water) to thin to desired consistency.
  • Garnish with some homemade bacon croutons!
